This plugin makes it possible to copy artifacts to remote locations.

History and Objectives

By default, Jenkins archives artifacts generated by the build. These artifacts are stored in the JENKINS_HOME directory with all other elements such as job configuration files.
There is no separation between infrastructure elements, project elements and outputs.
It is often considered to be a bad practice and it doesn't help to manage JENKINS_HOME directory from an administrator point of view (backup issues, etc).
And for now, we can't change the 'Archived artifacts' location.

ArtifactDeployer plugin enables you to archive build artifacts to any remote locations such as to a separate file server (outside of JENKINS_HOME directory).

There are many other Jenkins plugins close to ArtifactDeployer such as CopyArtifact plugin or CopyArchiver plugin for publishing artifacts from Jenkins resources (from the current workspace, from the old builds of the same job or other jobs, ...) to remote locations with the protocol file://
There are also others plugins for managing other protocols such as ftp://, ssh:///.

But none of these plugins provides a common way to manage the deployment.

ArtifactDeployer is a complete alternative to the built-in Jenkins feature "Archiving artefacts' and it is aimed at providing an uniform deployment mechanism.


  • Copies build artifacts from the workspace to a remote location shared on the build processor node
  • Provides links to archived artefacts from the job status page
  • Deletes on demand archived artifacts when the build is removed


  • Only file deployment is supported
  • For downloading deployed artifacts, remote location must be accessible from the Jenkins master
  • Jenkins process must have the right permissions to write in the specified location
