Configuring your automation server

Updated on April 5, 2022

Configure your automation server so that you can remotely start jobs on it. Your configuration depends on the automation server that you use.

For example, do the following steps to configure Jenkins:

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to the location of the Jenkins server.

  2. Install the Build Authorization Token Root Plugin.

    1. Click Manage Jenkins.

    2. Click Manage Plugins.

    3. On the Available tab, select the Build Authorization Token Root Plugin check box.

    4. Specify whether to install the plug-in without restarting Jenkins or download the plug-in and install it after restarting Jenkins.

  3. Configure your Jenkins job to use parameters.

    1. Open the job and click Configure.

    2. On the General tab, click the This project is parameterized check box.

    3. Click Add Parameter, and then click String Parameter.

    4. In the Name field, enter notificationSendToID, which is the operator ID of the user who started the Jenkins job.

      Email notifications about the job are sent to the email address that is associated with the user ID.

    5. Click Add Parameter, and then click String Parameter.

    6. In the Name field, enter branchName.

    7. Click Save.
