Formerly known as the Workflow plugin. Originally inspired by the Build Flow Plugin.

2.0 (Apr 05, 2016)


  1. Unknown User (micax)

    It's an interesting extension that provides a lot of functionality that has been missing, but without the visualization of the workflow, it's doesn't really feel like all that compelling an alternative to the existing plugins.

    1. Unknown User (lavaliere)

      CloudBees offers a visualization plugin for workflows:

        Is this plugin available separately somehow? Or do I have to buy the Jenkins Enterprise to have this available?

        1. Unknown User (orrc)

          That's a closed-source plugin created by CloudBees; you'd have to ask their sales people.

          Update, Jan 2016: The plugin is intended to be open-sourced at some point; see JENKINS-31154.

          1. Unknown User (hrmpw)

            Yes. Kohsuke announced this as part of his presentation on Jenkins 2.0. The OSS repo has been created and we will moving the code there soon. We will put out a blog when the plugin and its code are released into OSS.

        2. Unknown User (dserodio)

          The plugin has just been open sourced, but it's still in "alpha" stage: https://github.com/jenkinsci/pipeline-stage-view-plugin

  2. Unknown User (dom)

    The release notes link appears to be an empty list (for 1.10 -> 1.10.1), presumably because it's only showing the changes for the aggregator. Can that be fixed?

  3. Unknown User (jplandolt)

    The snippet generator does not show how to code for all given plugins (understandably).  Is there a way to add to this list?

    For example, it would be common to publish JUnit result report:

    step([$class: 'JUnitResultArchiver', testResults: '**/reports/unittest/TEST-*.xml'])

    Is there a comparable one for Publishing Cobertura reports:

    step([$class: 'Cobertura???', coverageResults: '**/reports/coverage/xml/*.xml'])

    Or others?

    1. Unknown User (jplandolt)

      Learning on the fly here. I see that JUnitResultArchiver implements SimpleBuildStep, whereas the CoberturaPublisher extends Recorder.

      Suggestions on how to publish Cobertura reports with the Pipeline?

      1. Unknown User (batmat)

        Hi Paul,

        Please use the users mailing list, or the #jenkins IRC channel for questions. You're far more likely to get support there. Few to no people watch the plugins comments in my experience.

    When using the multi branch feature there are onyl 2 build triggers in the job (periodically). The jobs that get created by the branch indexing do not have any build trigger configuration and i cannot even manually change it. How are the branch jobs supposed to be triggered?

  5. Unknown User (mmiehling)

    Is the Getting Started up to date? It says I will require Jenkins version 1.609.1+, but the only plugin I can find in the plugin manager that is simply named "Pipeline" says:

    Warning: This plugin is built for Jenkins 1.642.1 or newer. It may or may not work in your Jenkins.
    Warning: This plugin requires dependent plugins that are built for Jenkins 1.642.1 or newer. The dependent plugins may or may not work in your Jenkins and consequently this plugin may or may not work in your Jenkins.
    Am I looking at the wrong plugin in the manager?

  6. Unknown User (davidkarlsen2)

    Can you please upgrade the workflow-cps to latest version, 2.19?

  7. Unknown User (antebios)

    Is there an API to create the Pipeline via Powershell REST API calls?  If so, where is the documentation for it?

  8. Unknown User (freddy_kruger)

    Jenkins jobs do not normally (actually I have never seen it before with any plugins) trigger a run when you change and save job configuration.

    This plugin does so with Pipeline Items (jobs) as well as Multibranch Pipeline Items (jobs). Even a simply change of job description will trigger a run! Very annoying.

    Is there any way to disable autorun on config save with this plugin, and if not, could You please remove this "feature"?

  9. Unknown User (apetres)

    Could you upgrade the dependencies to the latest versions? My Jenkins instance displays warnings about some of them. To be more specific:

    • workflow-step-api to 2.12
    • pipeline-build-step to 2.5.1
    • pipeline-input-step to 2.8
  10. Unknown User (rmorrey53)

    I have noticed that the Build Stats Plugin fails to collect data from Pipeline builds.  Is there a way to get build information from a pipeline build included in those statistics?

  11. Unknown User (cashlalala)

    can the dependent plugins be updated alone?

  12. Unknown User (jielpe_fr38)

    A pipeline can be replayed, it is a very interesting feature. But I would like to know if it is possible to detect, in a pipeline script, if the current build is a replay of a preceding one ?
