In this lesson, learn about another parameter type, the choice parameter. Choice parameters limit the values that can be passed by defining those values in the jobs configuration.
- [Instructor] Now let's add another parameter…to our apache-ivy job.…A choice parameter.…Choice parameters are useful when you want to…limit the input that a user can give to a job.…So I'll click configure and go under the section…where the project is parameterized…and select add parameter, choice parameter.…Let's name this parameter environment,…and I'll go ahead and give it a description.…Please select the environment to deploy to.…
Now I'll enter some options to choose from.…For choice parameters the first choice entered…will be used as the default.…So I will enter development,…staging,…and production.…Now I'll go to the build environment…and update the build step with an echo statement…to report the environment.…If you're following along,…these statements are available in an exercise file.…
Now I'll click save and…build with parameters to run the job.…In this case, we get a menu that lists the items…that can be chosen for the environment parameter.…That limits what can be passed into the job.…I'll pick staging for this example.…
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.
