Github Plugin

This plugin creates links from Jenkins to Github projects.

The Github plugin decorates Jenkins "Changes" pages to create links to your Github commit and issue pages.
It adds a sidebar link that links back to the Github project page.

Usage:

When creating a job, specify that is connects to git. Under "Github project", put in: git@github.com:Person/Project.git

Under "Source Code Management" select Git, and put in git@github.com:Person/_Project._git

Possible Issues:

Windows:

  • In windows, Jenkins will use the the SSH key of the user it is running as, which is located in the %USERPROFILE%\.ssh folder ( on XP, that would be C:\Documents and Settinsusername\.ssh, and on 7 it would be C:\Usersusername\.ssh). Therefore, you need to force Jenkins to run as the user that has the SSH key configured. To do that, right click on My Computer, and hit "Manage". Click on "Services". Go to Jenkins, right click, and select  "Properties". Under the "Log On" tab, choose the user Jenkins will run as, and put in the username and password (it requires one). Then restart the Jenkins service by right clicking on Jenkins (in the services window), and hit "Restart".
  • Jenkins does not support passphrases for SSH keys. Therefore, if you set one while running the initial Github configuration, rerun it and don't set one.
