Boolean parameters allow jobs to support true or false values.
- [Instructor] Let's extend our apache-ivy job…by adding a Boolean parameter.…In this case we'll add an option to run tests…on the application before the code is deployed.…To add this parameter I'll configure the project,…select add parameter, and choose Boolean parameter.…I'll give it the name RUN_TESTS.…This will add a checkbox parameter to the build interface.…If the checkbox is activated then…the run test environment variable will be set to true.…
If it's not activated the variable will be set to false.…For Boolean parameters the default value…lets us pick which value is the default.…If the box is checked then the default will be set to true.…If it's unchecked it'll be set to false.…In this case, I'll leave the box unchecked…so the default will be false.…For the description I'll add check this box…to run tests before deployment.…Now let's update the build step…to use the run test parameter.…
If you're following along,…an exercise file is provided with the commands I'm typing.…I'll enter an echo statement…and then some code to check the value.…
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.
