Traffic Light Plugin

Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

This plugin provides the functionality to use traffic lights to indicate the status of the last build of a project.

When a build of an observed project starts, the traffic light will show the yellow lamp. If the build ends without any problems, it will change to green, otherwise (failed tests, aborted build, …) the red light will be turned on.
It is currently necessary to connect the traffic light to a “Net-PwrCtrl Home” of ANEL Elektronik AG or a "Infratech PM 211-MIP". Both power plugs can be used independently from each other.

Configuration for the net-control power plug:

Plug number
Color of traffic light

Configuration for the infratec power plug:

Slave plug number
Color of traffic light

The IP address and the observed projects can be configured through “Manage Jenkins” -> “Configure System” under the term “Traffic light configuration”. If there is no address set for a power plug, it will be considered deactivated.

Known Issues:

Loss of configuration after update from 2.0:
    Due to renamed properties, the old configuration will be considered invalid and has to be reentered.

Future plans:
    - Support for an arbitrary number of  traffic lights.
    - UI enchancement of the configuration.
