  2. ● I am a 3rd year Computer Science student from Visvesvaraya National
    Institute of Technology, Nagpur, India.
    ● I am a regular competitive programmer.
    ● I have done two internships as a Game Programmer as well.
    ● My interest in automation motivated my participation in the Jenkins GSOC
    2018 program
    .

    Introduction

  3. ● Use-case: Jenkins Pipeline as YAML job definitions
    ○ Easy to use by non-experts
    ○ Minimal definition for common cases (Makefile, validated merge)
    ● Jenkins Pipeline is Groovy DSL
    ● Groovy DSL may be complex, even with Declarative Pipeline
    ● YAML definitions can be used to simplify.

  4. 1. Travis YML Plugin: Runs “.travis.yml” as jenkins pipeline job. Does not
    support external pull request. Last commit for this plugin was on 14 Nov 2016.
    2. CodeShip Plugin: Converts codeship "steps.yaml" and "services.yaml" to
    scripted pipeline code. This plugin has never been released.
    3. Jenkins pipeline builder: This is a external non-Java-based tool, which
    cannot be easily converted to a Jenkins plugin.

  6. 1. Configure job for pull requests using a YAML file.
    2. Interaction with Bitbucket Server, Bitbucket Cloud, Gitlab and Github.
    3. Detect the presence of certain types of reports at conventional location, and
    publish them. Non-conventional report locations can be configured in the
    YAML file.
    4. Publish build status.

    Project Objectives

    View full-size slide

  7. 1. Build on the top of multibranch pipeline plugin, leveraging:
    a. Interface to show branch and pull requests build.
    b. Detection of trusted revisions in a repository.
    c. Publishing of build status to the repository.
    2. Convert the YAML configuration to declarative pipeline.
    a. Parse the yaml description extracting steps and configuration values.
    b. Declarative step lookup handled by the CasC plugin.

    Design

  8. 1. Use a Jenkinsfile.yaml for build.
    2. Git Push step (Users do not call git push explicitly)
    3. Build and tests performed by user defined script called from Jenkinsfile.yaml
    4. Agent configuration in “Jenkinsfile.yaml”
    5. harvest results and reports.
    a. junit()
    b. findbugs()
    c. archiveArtifacts section
    6. Basic interface to parse and get build specifications from YAML file.

  9. 1. Step Configurator (Based on JCasC plugin)
    a. Limitations:
    i. Difficulty with Enums (will be resolved in next alpha release of JCasC plugin, PR 346)
    ii. Difficulty with “JiraTestDataPublisher.class” and may be other classes (JENKINS-52444)
    2. A format for “Jenkinsfile.yaml”. (All details present in Blog Post)
    3. Tools property in agent section of Jenkinsfile.yaml.
    4. Some tests for the plugin. (PR 14)
    Code improvements:
    ● Manual indentation removed from PipelineSnippetGenerator class.

    Step Code Generation
    junit:
    testResults: "target/**.xml"
    allowEmptyResults: true
    testDataPublishers:
    - AutomateTestDataPublisher
    - JunitResultPublisher:
    urlOverride: "urlOverride"
    junit allowEmptyResults: true, testDataPublishers:
    [[$class: 'AutomateTestDataPublisher'], [$class:
    'JunitResultPublisher', urlOverride: 'urlOverride']],
    testResults: 'target/**.xml'

  11. 1. Declarative pipeline code generator detach to extensions.
    2. More unit tests were written.
