Configure

Create host configurations in the main Jenkins configuration

From the Jenkins home page, click "Manage Jenkins" and the click on "Configure System"

Find the FTP section (as below) and click on the "Add" button next to "FTP Servers"

You should now have the configuration options as below

Fill in Name, Hostname, Username, Password and Remote Directory. see Publish Over ... for common options for Host Configurations

Advanced

If you click the "Advanced..." button for a configuration, then you will make more configuration options available (see below)

see Publish Over ... for common options for Host Configurations

Use active data mode

By default passive mode will be used to connect to the FTP Server.
In passive mode the client initiates all connections which will allow the client to send files through a firewall that has been configured to refuse all inbound connections (and does not create dynamic rules).
If you want to dissable passive mode, and have the client use PORT commands for the server to connect to the client to retieve the files, then you can check this box.

Don't make nested dirs

Do not try to create nested directories with a single MKD command
The default behaviour when creating directories is to try to create the target directory with single command, even if it is nested. If this fails, the plugin will fall back to creating each directory individually. Some FTP servers, when asked to create nested directories will respond with a success code, but will not create the directories correctly. This will result in directories being created in incorrect branches of the directory tree.
This option will not prevent the creation of nested directories, it is just a fix for badly behaved FTP servers.

Click "Test Configuration".
Add more server configurations (if required)
Save

Configure a job to Publish Over FTP

Open a jobs main page and then click "Configure" from the left hand menu.

Find the "Send build artifacts over FTP" checkbox in the "Post-build Actions" section (as below) and click in the box.

You should now have the configuration options as below

see Publish Over ... for common options for Server

see Publish Over ... for common options for Transfer Sets

Source files
The build will fail if you do not select any Source files to transfer
Advanced (Transfer Sets)

If you click the "Advanced..." button for a Transfer Set, then you will make more configuration options available (see below)

see Publish Over ... for common options for Transfer Sets

ASCII mode

Transfer the files using ASCII mode.
This means that during the transfer, new lines and carriage returns will be converted from the format used on the client operating system to the format used on the servers operating system.
Do not use this option if your Source files pattern will match any binary files, as there is a good chance that binary files will be corrupted during transfer.

Clean remote

Delete all files and directories from the remote directory before uploading the new files.

Advanced (Publisher)

If you click the "Advanced..." button that is immediately below the "Add Server" button, then you will make more configuration options available (see below)

see Publish Over ... for common options for Publisher

Options to override the default Promotion behaviour

If you are configuring an action in a promotion, new options will become available.

see Publish Over ... for common options for Promotions
