This lesson describes how to configure a freestyle job, one of the most versatile job types that Jenkins supports.
- [Instructor] Okay, now let's take a closer look…at the job configuration page for your Hello Jenkins job.…If you're still on the console output page,…click back to project.…Now, click configure.…First, notice the tabs at the top.…These outline the sections of the configuration.…In the general section, the first thing you see…is the project name.…It's already filled in from the previous form…when you pick the project type.…The next field is the description.…You can use this field to add additional text…that describes the job and what it does.…
A good name for the job goes a long way,…but the description can be used…to provide even more detail,…like what the job produces, when the job runs…or the environment that the job needs to be run in.…In this case, enter something like,…this job prints Hello Jenkins.…Next is discard old builds.…Jenkins keeps a record of each build…along with the files generated by the build,…including log files and artifacts.…This is great if you want to review the history of a job…but old builds take up disk space.…
First, learn how to set up Jenkins on Mac, Windows, Linux, or inside a Docker container, and find out how Jenkins plugins are used to extend its functionality. Next, configure your first job step by step, leading up to the requisite "Hello, World" output, and learn to make your jobs more useful and portable with parameters. Then explore job scheduling, and Jenkins's convenient aliases for running jobs at regular intervals. The course wraps up with tips for organizing jobs in folders and views and a brief look into pipelines as code-which enable you to execute a series of jobs in stages.
By the end of the training, you should be able to install Jenkins locally or on a virtual machine, create a Jenkins jobs that can be triggered manually or on a schedule, and install and configure plugins to extend the Jenkins framework.
