Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees plugin

This plugin converts an OSS installation to a Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees (JEBC) installation. JEBC has 20+ plugins that address issues in enterprise installations. Plugins include folders, validate merges, templates, roles-based access control, backup plugins and others (complete list). Additionally, you can use the HA component to make Jenkins highly available.
Note: As part of the installation process, you will require a valid license to use the CloudBees Enterprise plugins. 

Installation/Uninstallation

Prerequisites

  • You must be running a sufficiently new version of Jenkins: either the current LTS release, or the newest available weekly build.
  • Your Jenkins installation must be able to download and install plugins from the OSS update centre.
    In other words, if you cannot use the plugin update center to install this plugin then it will not work.

Installation

This plugin can be installed without restart, but will require a restart to complete installation. 

  1. Install the Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees plugin.
  2. Install the plugin without restart.
  3. Once the plugin is installed, go to Manage Jenkins » Install Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees and select your preferred installation option. It will add the CloudBees proprietary update center to the list of update centers used by your Jenkins instance as well as the certificate used to validate that update center's certificate.
  4. When all the plugins have been downloaded, a Safe Restart will be triggered, or if the Servlet Container that your Jenkins instance is running in does not support safe restarts, a notice bar will be displayed to tell you to restart your Jenkins instance.
  5. When your Jenkins instance restarts, you will be asked to either Request an evaluation license or provide an Enterprise license. A valid license is a necessary condition for the Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees plugins.

    If you do not want to register your system with CloudBees there is an option for removing the CloudBees plugins that require a license for use.

    You click on the red delete icons to remove the license enforcement check or the license manager plugin. A restart will be required if you remove any of the license enforcement checks or the license manager plugin.
  6. Once you have completed the registration process your Jenkins instance will complete startup as normal. 

Uninstallation

To uninstall, simply disable or delete the Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees plugin and the Jenkins Enterprise License Entitlement Check plugins. Once these plugins are disabled, all the Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees plugins will be disabled automatically, though it is better to remove them from your instance to improve startup performance.
