Jenkins SD Elements plugin
SD Elements is a platform that translates policies to prescriptive, measurable procedures that are used by IT and Engineering teams to achieve their security and compliance objectives. SD Elements generates and tracks granular controls with a flexible rule-based engine and integrates those controls into ALMs and enterprise workflows used by development teams, including those leveraging DevOps. The platform provides an accurate view into the risk and compliance status of applications in development.
This plugin will allow users to add a post-build action to pass/fail their job, based on the compliance status to a given project's risk policy.
- Configure SD Elements servers in Jenkins global configuration (Jenkins -> Configure system)
- Configure post-build action in Jenkins job to check for risk compliance:
- Configure project ID from SD Elements
- Chose SD Elements server (from the one configured globally)
- Post-build step will query project risk compliance:
- Risk status pass allows successful build
- Risk status fail fails the build, but configuration allows to set unstable
- Failure to determine risk status will fail the build, error message can be found in build console output
- If mandatory SD Element project survey isn't completed, job fails
UI and summary:
- Left menu

- In summary section

The plugin only supports the usage of credentials using a generated token. You need to generate a token in SD Elements for your user that can read the status of projects. You do that by clicking
<your name> in the upper right corner, and the

Project page (job page)
Shows latest status for last build checking risk status.
Below it Shows unable to determine risk compliance, e.g. when it can be found due to configuration errors like wrong server URL, authentication and like. Check console log for description of the problem.
Invalid token in credentials
SD Elements compliance status: Undetermined
Build step 'SD Elements' changed build result to FAILURE
Build pages shows historic results for each builds, but the graphics are the same as on the project page. Examples:
Build successful when risk status pass:
Build fails when risk status fails:
Configuration can set build status unstable when risk status fails:
Build will fail when mandatory survey in SD Elements isn't completed:
