Jenkins integration

CloudBees platform for SDM is a preview, with early access for select preview members. Product features and documentation are frequently updated. If you find an issue or have a suggestion, please contact support@cloudbees.com.
Jenkins integration requires a free DevOptics account. CloudBees platform for SDM uses the existing DevOptics integration and data ingestion to Jenkins Masters.

You need to install up to two plugins from the Jenkins update center. These plugins enable Jenkins jobs and pipelines to be associated with products so information like blockages and failed builds can be reported within CloudBees platform for SDM.

The two plugins are the DevOptics installation and DevOptics:

  • The DevOptics installation, which adds the CloudBees platform for SDM update center to Jenkins.

  • The DevOptics plugin, which integrates the Jenkins into DevOptics.

If you are using an open source Jenkins distribution, then you must install both plugins.

Jenkins distributions provided by CloudBees already have the Update Center enabled and only require the DevOptics plugin.

CloudBees platform for SDM users with a DevOptics subscription have access to additional DevOptics features, such as run insights and value streams.
