Plugin Information

View XebiaLabs XL Release on the plugin site for more information.

The XL Release Plugin integrates Jenkins with XebiaLabs XL Releaseby adding one post-build action to your Jenkins installation:

  • Release with XL Release



  • Start release process in XL Release
  • Load release template from XL Release
  • Provide input for release variables
  • Support jenkins credentials plugin


  • There are two places to configure the XL Release Jenkins Plugin: the global Jenkins configuration and job configuration.

    Plugin configuration

  • At Manage Jenkins -> Configure System you can specify the XL Release server URL and one or more sets of credentials. Different credentials can be used for different jobs.

     Job configuration

  • In the Job Configuration page, choose Post-build Actions -> Add post-build action -> Release with XL Release. To get an explanation of each setting, click on the question mark sign located right next to each setting.
    Type the template name in the box and select a value from the drop down.
    Note For XL Release version later than 6.0.0, type the '/' suffix in front of the folder name. This allows you to see the subfolders and template names in the specified folder.

After selecting the appropriate template click on verify template to validate it.
