LRM Jenkins Configure System
This section assumes that the Jenkins home directory is /home/jenkins. On some systems, the Jenkins home directory is set to /var/lib/jenkins instead. Verify your home directory to follow the instructions below. For generality, <HOME> will be used in place of the actual directory.
To set the environment variables, select Jenkins and Manage Jenkins on the left. From there, select Configure System. On the configuration page, scroll down to the Global properties section and select Environmental variables.
The following are the name value pairs to add:
- LRM_HOME (e.g.: <HOME>/lingoport/lrm-server-x.x)
- DASHBOARD_HOME (e.g.: <HOME>/lingoport/dashboard-client-x.x)
If you are using TFS, add the TFS command line executable location to the PATH:
- $PATH (e.g.: PATH:/home/jenkins/team_foundation_server/TEE-CLC-12.0.2/ )
If you are using Git, rebasing is used to keep the branch of an LRM project with a specified branch, such as master. To do so, an LRM project config_vcs.properties file must end up with the following property:
- If the LRM plugin is used, the
config_vcs.propertiesgets overwritten. Add at the same location a file called
config_vcs.properties_rebasewith the above line in it, it will be appended to the
- If using a special script, the
config_vcs.propertiesmay persist from one invocation to another. In that case, simply add the
VCS_GIT_REBASE_BRANCH=masterline at the end of the
Configure Global Security
The minimal configuration would be to setup the configuration with:
- Jenkins' own user database and
- a matrix based security,
with the following privileges:
- anonymous have a set of very few privileges, if any.
- 'authenticated' the ability to run builds, and
- a few administration accounts with all privileges
Note: If you want to continue the configuration using scripts, you need to allow the Job/Read permission on anonymous users.
