The CollabNet Plugin is an integration with CollabNet TeamForge. Don't have TeamForge yet?  Try our free 90-day trial.

Provided features include:

  • Authenticate users from TeamForge.  If setup as the "Build & Test" application, it can even use Single Sign-On.
  • Authorization from TeamForge, including the ability to set permissions in Jenkins based on roles in your TeamForge project.
  • Upload the build log or workspace artifacts to the TeamForge Documents.
  • Upload workspace artifacts to the TeamForge File Release System, as a post-build publishing task or as a build promotion task.
  • Open/update/close TeamForge Tracker artifacts based on the Jenkins build status.
  • Upload workspace artifacts to the Lab Management Project Build Library.  (Requires CollabNet Lab Management).


Installation help and configuration help are available on

Please submit any questions to the TeamForge forum.


   1.  Does this integrate with / update the SFEE Plugin?

        No, the SFEE Plugin is a separate plugin that is not maintained by CollabNet.  It works with CollabNet SourceForge 4.4, so it may be a good choice if you have an older version.  Our plugin is not a direct upgrade.  If you change from using the SFEE Plugin to the CollabNet Plugin, you will have to reconfigure your jobs appropriately.  You should be able to use both plugins simultaneously, if you wish, although it might be a bit confusing.

   2.  Uploads fail when using an SSL-enabled TeamForge server.  What do I do?

        You'll need to add the server's certificate to your java keystore on the Jenkins server.  First dowload the certificate to your Jenkins server.  You should be able to get it by opening a browser window on the TeamForge server, viewing the certificate associated with that page, and exporting the certificate file.  Then, you'll need to run something like "sudo keytool -keystore $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts -import -file teamforge.cert".  (On Windows, replace $JAVA_HOME with %JAVA_HOME%).  If you haven't changed your java keystore's password, it will be "changeit".  After you've imported the cert to the java instance that Jenkins is using, it should be able to upload.

   3.  I'm having problems with login and logout when using CollabNet Authentication.  It seems to be redirecting to an unexpected site.

        Go to the Jenkins configure page and look in the Email Notifacation section. The CollabNet plugin uses the value of the Jenkins URL set here for redirection. If it's wrong, logins will go astray. Check that it's set to the real Jenkins URL.

   4.  I've setup authentication, but can no longer get to the "Manage Jenkins" pages.&nbps; How do I get back into the system?

        As long as you have access to the machine and user running Jenkins, you'll be able to get back in. Just log into the machine. Find the Jenkins home (by default, this will be the ~/.jenkins or ~/.hudson directory of the user running Jenkins). Edit the config.xml, changing the value for "useSecurity" to false. Restart Jenkins and you should not need to log in to get access.
