Jenkins : Process Cleaner Plugin

Eliminate running processes before or after build.

Plugin Information

View Process cleaner on the plugin site for more information.

Older versions of this plugin may not be safe to use. Please review the following warnings before using an older version:

With this plugin user can decide to clean the processes either before or after the build. It can either kill all processes started by the user that runs Jenkins agent (except of that process) or all child processes of Jenkins agent (note this will not affect processes running on background).

Note the plugin can decide not to perform the cleanup in case there is a chance it will affect other jobs on the same machine. In other words, it will be skipped when there is another build running on the same slave.




Renew the plugin distribution after SECURITY-489.

  • The Groovy script process cleaner is no longer supported by plugin.
    • Upgrading from older version is safe in a sense the scripts are preserved for users to migrate them to different solutions but scripts are no longer executed.
