We use Jenkins to run smoke tests, regression tests, build the release tarball, and to build RPMs. It is hosted on in the RDU.


The plugins of note are the following:

  • Gerrit trigger
  • Job configuration history plugin
  • Audit trail
  • Git plugin


There are two unix groups used to grant access to people:

  • jenkinsadmins: This group has full access to Jenkins to manage Jenkins itself and edit jobs.
  • jenkinsusers: This group has access to retrigger jobs and read job configuration.

To add a user to one of these groups, add them like this:

usermod -a -G jenkinsadmins nigelb
