Jenkins can run jobs on a schedule and uses a syntax similar to cron to define when a job should be run. Learn how to configure a schedule for jobs and also learn shortcuts for jobs that run at regular intervals like hourly, weekly, or monthly.
- [Instructor] Running jobs on a schedule…helps with automating things, like updating software,…checking system details, or downloading and processing data.…If you're familiar with system administration,…the thought of using a Cron job to run a schedule task,…might come to mind in these examples.…Yes, you could use Cron, but using Jenkins…as a framework for your schedule task,…provides many more capabilities and options.…In fact, Jenkins uses a format similar…to Cron for scheduling jobs.…So let's start by taking a look…at using this format in a schedule job.…
I'll start by creating a freestyle job.…And I'll name it daily disk report.…Then I'll add a description that this job reports…the disk space used on the server.…Now, I'll scroll down and check the box…next to build periodically.…Jenkins opens a field for me, to fill in the schedule…for when this job will be run.…As I mentioned, this field follows a format…similar to the one used by Cron.…
Each line of the schedule consists of five fields,…separated by tab, or wide 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.
