Jenkins Integration for Jira

Welcome to the Jenkins Integration for Jira documentation!

Background

This project finds its roots in the JIRA Hudson Integration project. That project was plagued by issues effecting large to very large deployments of, at the time, Hudson and now Jenkins. That implementation took a real time approach to showing build data in Jira. However, the larges a Jenkins instance became, the slower the integration became to the point where both Jira and Jenkins would stop performing.

The new implementation is taking a caching approach to showing build data in Jira, this approach greatly simplifies the Jenkins add-on and improves the performance impact of running the integration on both Jira and Jenkins.

Getting Started

Getting started is easy, it’s a simple 4-step process that is highlighted in the Quick Start Guide.

TL;DR: 1 install Jira app, 2 install Jenkins plug-in, 3 Configure Jenkins Site in Jira, 4 Enjoin Insight.
