DevOps World | Jenkins World SF is around the corner, so time for an update post to add to the collection of posts on DevOptics … et al.
Back in September 2018 I posted instructions on how to install your Jenkins distribution from scratch, and then how to install the DevOptics Plugins. Let’s assume you had done that, so, picking up from there…
The first step would be to install the latest version of Jenkins. Since I already had one, I just accepted the request from within Jenkins and installed the new version. That got me from 2.121.3 to
Next was to upgrade the DevOptics Plugin
By now I was running a fairly old version, I jumped from 1.1349 to 1.1739
The upgrade went pretty smoothly, and I restarted. Then I went to look at the Connectivity status of the DevOptics Plugin. Here, the latest Plugin is trying something different: it is asking me if I want to enable the Value Stream functionality. Here is the screenshot:
The Value Stream functionality depends on additional plugins. I can continue as-is, without installing the extra dependencies, or I can install the recommended plugins. I chose the latter, and then I reinstalled.
I knew that my DevOptics subscription had changed recently, so, partly as an exercise, I disconnected the plugin and then reconnected. This is the popup we get on disconnect
And this is the message we get on reconnect:
Cool. Now I am back to where I was, except that now the new dependencies have been installed and my DevOptics plugin is fully connected.
At this point we are cooking and the Plugin should be connected to the back-end. Stay tuned for the next post in this series.
