Jenkins : Embotics vCommander Plugin


Embotics provides a plugin for Jenkins automation servers (Jenkins version 1.651.3 or greater). The vCommander Jenkins plugin allows you to configure a Jenkins build job to request virtual services and run command workflows in a vCommander instance (version 7.0.0 or greater) as part of building, deploying and installing a project.

Using the vCommander Jenkins plugin, you can add any of the following build steps to freestyle projects:

  • request virtual services
  • run command workflows
  • wait steps to ensure that requests or workflows have sufficient time to complete

The vCommander plugin enables more effective continuous integration and delivery for improved DevOps capabilities. Using the vCommander plugin allows you to quickly add vCommander build steps — you don't need to create lengthy and complex scripts to include in your Jenkins job.

For example, with the help of the vCommander plugin you can create a Jenkins job with vCommander build steps that each day would delete the test virtual machine from the previous day, submit a service request to deploy a new VM, and install the most recent build of your software on the new VM.

Embotics vCommander multi-cloud management platform is the fastest and easiest way to automate provisioning, enforce governance, and enable self-service IT across virtualized, private and public cloud infrastructures.
