Easy Jenkins Jobs
- There are jobs on the Jenkins server that start with 'ejj_template' (this is configurable via the config.coffee file)
- EJJ will query for all jobs with that prefix and replace it with the name specified in the POST URL
How Do I Trigger This?
- Send a POST to http://ejj_server:1234
- [ejj_server] is the server that EJJ is running on
- include the following in a JSON payload
- 'jobPrefix': the prefix you will be using to replace 'ejj_template' with
- 'jenkinsUrl': the URL of the Jenkins server. (http://jenkins:8080/)
- this will default to 'http://localhost:8080/' if nothing is specified
What Can I Configure?
- port: (1337) the port that EJJ will listen on
- jobPrefix: ('ejj_template') the prefix of jobs that will be used as templates. For every job found with this prefix, EJJ will create a copy of it with the passed in 'jobPrefix'.
- defaultJenkinsUrl: ('http://localhost:8080/') the url that will be used if none is specified in the JSON payload
- logLevel: ('info') the default logging level. See winston for more information.
- defaultLogFile: ('logs/app.log') the default place to place log files. By default log files will only get as large as 1MB until a new file is started.
And voila! The server is started and you can start sending requests to the EJJ server.
