Creating Your First Job in Jenkins with uberSVN

As uberSVN fans will already know, Jenkins has been available as a free, easy-to-install download through uberSVN since April 2011, and we have since extended our partnership with CloudBees to offer professional support for Jenkins.

uberSVN makes the popular Jenkins continuous integration server easy-to-install and easy-to-download, bringing benefits such as the automatic creation of software builds to Apache Subversion users. Getting started with Jenkins in uberSVN couldn’t be easier. Once you have Jenkins installed in uberSVN, your first task is to create a Jenkins job, and in this short tutorial, we’ll cover exactly this.

1) From uberSVN’s ‘repositories’ tab, select the repository you wish Jenkins to be associated with. In this example, we will use the ‘New Project’ repository.

2) Select the secondary ‘Jenkins’ tab. In the subsequent ‘Job Creation’ screen, enter a name for your job and a description, and click ‘Create.’

3) You will then be prompted to configure your job, by selecting available options for how you want your job to be set up (email notifications, publish JUnit test result reports, source code management, etc.) When you are happy with the configuration, click ‘Save.’

4) When you view your repository in uberSVN you will notice that a new ‘Jenkins’ tab has been added, which contains the job you have just created.

5) To start the job, click on the ‘New Jenkins Job’ link. On the subsequent page, select ‘Build Now’ to start Jenkins.

You have now successfully created your first Jenkins job in uberSVN.
