Installing Plug-ins

There are different ways to install plug-ins. BioUno has some Jenkins plug-ins that have to be installed manually. You can find the complete documentation for installing plug-ins in the Plug-ins Wiki page from Jenkins project.

From the main screen, go to Manage Jenkins and in sequence to Manage Plugins.

There you should see a screen with four tabs. Looks for the Available tab. Clicking on it will bring the list of available plug-ins, organized by categories.

As we've talked about notifications prior, look for the email-ext plugin. This plug-ins adds more options for sending notifications from your builds.

In newer versions of Jenkins you can install some plug-ins without having to restart. All you have to do is just click on Install without restart.

Wait until the screen is refreshed and voilĂ , you have just installed your first plug-in.

In order to install BioUno Jenkins Plug-ins, you will have to add our update site.
