Agent platforms

Not applicable for CloudBees Analytics for CloudBees CI installations.

You can drive automation on target machines by either installing agents natively or by running them remotely using proxy agents.

Proxy agents for other platforms

Not applicable for CloudBees Analytics for CloudBees CI installations.

A proxy agent is a CloudBees CD/RO agent that channels to a proxy target, which lets you drive automation in an agentless fashion. A proxy agent is an agent on a supported Microsoft Windows or Linux platform that you use to take actions on any platform that is not listed above. For example, you can use a proxy agent to automate actions on an IBM z Systems mainframe running z/OS or Linux OS.

You can use a proxy agent to communicate with any target platform that can run commands via an SSH protocol.

Databases

Refer to the table below for a complete list of the officially supported databases for CloudBees CD/RO:

Databases must be configured to use UTF-8 encoding and they must allow up to 200 open connections.

1 Clean installations of the CloudBees CD/RO server require the MySQL JDBC driver. For upgrades, additions to my.cnf/my.ini are required. See Installing the MySQL JDBC Driver.

2 As of version 9.2, CloudBees Flow has ended support for HTTPS connection types older than TLS 1.2. If you are using MS SQL Server 2012 or 2014, you must update it to support TLS1.2. For details, see the Microsoft TLS 1.2 support for Microsoft SQL Server web page.

3 The built-in MariaDB database is a supported database for production use with CloudBees Analytics for CloudBees CI, only. It continues to not be supported for production use for CloudBees CD/RO and full CloudBees Software Delivery Automation.

4 Databases that have been verified with Amazon RDS Aurora: MySQL 8.0.27 and PostGreSQL 13.4.

Browsers

CloudBees CD/RO supports the following web browsers:

  • Microsoft Edge

  • Mozilla Firefox

  • Google Chrome

Web browser extensions such as AdBlock Plus for Google Chrome can interfere with the display of CloudBees CD/RO web pages. You should disable any ad-blocking browser extensions or add an exclusion for CloudBees CD/RO web pages.
