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

History and Objectives

Jenkins provides by default a feature for archiving artifacts generated by the build of a Jenkins Job. These artifacts are archived in the JENKINS_HOME directory. However, this directory contains also tool configurations (global and job configurations). Therefore, there is no separation between infrastructure data, jobs data and generated elements. It is often considered to be a bad practice and it doesn't help to manage it from an administrator point of view.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to extend the 'archived artifacts' feature to archive artifacts in a location other than JENKINS_HOME.

The main goal of the ArtifactDeployer plugin is to archive artifacts in your desired locations (other than JENKINS_HOME directory).

There are many 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 aimed at providing a common deployment mechanism.


  • Copies artifacts generated by the build Job from the workspace to a directory on a build processor node
  • Deploys artifacts from a common way
  • Provides links to archived artifacts
  • Triggers an external system for deleting archived artifacts of a build when the build is removed
