How did you create a Job in jenkins? In my company devops team maintains the jenkins and as a tester my jenkins account user do not have enough privilege to create new jobs. I provide them server specifications which means minimum capacity of the jenkins server (maven, java 8, browser types(chrome, firefox or what you need), OS(Mac-Windows), etc). I can only run the jobs and see the results. To create my smoke tests on jenkins I created a ticket in jira for the devops team. But also know how to create and configure jenkins jobs myself. I have done it in my previous projects. How you configure a job(build) in Jenkins? As a test engineer I only configured my smoke tests on jenkins. how we configure our smoke test also depend s on what tools we have in our framework. I have a cucumber + junit + maven framework. So this is how that job is configured: 1. Source Code Management Here we specify where to get the code from. we put the link of our GitHub repo and also enter the credentials 2. Build Triggers We specify how often we run those tests. we choose Build periodically because we want to run in certain schedule. in my project, we run smoke tests every morning. so in the build trigger we entered daily option: H 6 * * * --> every day around 6 am. Jenkins used a cron expression, and the different fields are: H * * * * ==> Build every hour at any minute (6.12 am, 8.38pm) 0 * * * * ==> Build every hour at exactly on the hour (6.00 am, 8.00pm) 0 8 * * * ==> Build every day exactly 8.00 am H/5 * * * * ==> Build every 5 minutes H 6 * * 1-5 ==> Build around 6 am from first day of the week (Monday) to 5th day (Friday) H 1 * 6,20 * * ==> Build on 6th and 20th day of the month around 1 am for regression 3. Build Here we enter the details of the actual Run. since my project is based on maven, I choose option: Invoke top-level maven targets then I choose which maven to run from the version dropdown. in the next field, I enter the maven goal: verify. in this field we do not need to enter the word mvn. I can also mention here which tag or which runner class I want to run. So the command will be: verify -Dcucumber.options="--tags @smoke" ==> for smoke test verify -Dcucumber.options="--tags @regression" ==> for regression test 4. Add Post-build Actions In the post build actions, we configure what we want to do after build. after each test we generate report and email a. report We generate report using Cucumber reports plugin. I select Cucumber reports plugin from the Post-build Actions to generate reports. b. Email Using the email plugin we can send email after every build. I select Editable Email Notification option from the Post-build Actions to send emails.
