Details

Jenkins, formerly known as Hudson Labs, monitors executions of repeated jobs, such as continuous deployment/ continuous deployment pipelines for software projects.

The CA Agile Central plugin for Jenkins automatically uploads build information to CA Agile Central on a per-project basis and links builds to artifacts (when used with a CA Agile Central VCS connector).

This enables traceability of build to story/defect, build status information, cross-team and historical build trending within CA Agile Central.

Major features include:

  • View Jenkins job status by project
  • Easily link to Jenkins build page
  • Roll up build statuses using project hierarchy
  • Build dashboards to view build health and traceability
  • Track build history by project and over time
  • All of your build status information in one place
  • Identify which builds are associated with stories or defects
  • Store build history for analytics purposes
  • Build custom apps or dashboards to understand:
    • What percentage of builds are currently broken
    • What is the duration of broken builds
    • Which teams are best at keeping builds green
