CloudBees Core support, in a nutshell

  • Only CloudBees-certified plugins are supported on CloudBees Jenkins-core-based services.

  • You must have installed the Support Core plugin.

  • CloudBees Core is delivered as multiple software packages for the different services required for a CloudBees Core deployment and for different platforms.

  • You can expect the various CloudBees Core packages to provide services that run in a Jenkins-core based runtime, and also services that run in other runtimes.

  • You can expect CloudBees to independently ensure that fixes to critical security issues and bugs affecting its customers are included in each monthly release of its Jenkins-based packages, even if they have not yet been incorporated into the community Jenkins release.

  • CloudBees will generally, but not always, release all packages monthly within n days after Jenkins-core LTS community releases.

  • You can expect any Jenkins-core runtime based service packages to incorporate all new features, bug and security fixes from the most recent Jenkins-core Long Term Support (LTS) release.

  • CloudBees reserves the right to release other CloudBees Core packages on a different schedule in the future.
