Provides Maven integration with Pipeline Plugin by using the withMaven step, which configures a maven environment to use within a pipeline job by calling sh mvn or bat mvn.


An example pipeline script using the pipeline Maven plugin:

  stage ('Build') {

    git url: 'https://github.com/cyrille-leclerc/multi-module-maven-project'

        // Maven installation declared in the Jenkins "Global Tool Configuration"
        maven: 'M3',
        // Maven settings.xml file defined with the Jenkins Config File Provider Plugin
        // Maven settings and global settings can also be defined in Jenkins Global Tools Configuration
        mavenSettingsConfig: 'my-maven-settings',
        mavenLocalRepo: '.repository') {

      // Run the maven build
      sh "mvn clean install"

    } // withMaven will discover the generated Maven artifacts, JUnit Surefire & FailSafe reports and FindBugs reports

Withn a node or a docker.image block, create a withMaven block to setup a with maven environment. The configured environment will be used when calling maven inside the block by using sh mvn or bat mvn. The following parameters can be used to configure maven:

(info) mavenSettingsConfig and globalMavenSettingsConfig use the ID, not the name, of the Maven settings file (resp Maven Global Settings file).

The Pipeline Syntax snippet code generator can be used to assist on generating the withMaven step parameters

In the above example the following parameters are use to configure maven:


Sensible default Maven parameters

The Maven parameters that are useful on a build server, "--batch-mode" ("-B") and "--show-version" ("-V") are enable by default, no need to add them in your mvn invocations.

Maven Settings Support

The "withMaven()" pipeline step will setup the Maven settings file and global settings file either explicitly using the attributes of the "withMaven(){}" step declaration or implicitly using the Maven Global Settings and Settings files defined in the Jenkins Global Tools Configuration.

Using implicit declaration, Jenkins administrators can simplify the work of pipeline authors hiding the "boilerplate" to declare the credentials of the Git, Nexus, Artifactory... servers and all the needed proxies, mirrors...

Traceability of Maven builds

The "withMaven()" pipeline step will capture in the logs of the build all the details of the execution:


[withMaven] use JDK installation JDK8
[withMaven] use Maven installation 'M3'
[withMaven] use Maven settings provided by the Jenkins Managed Configuration File 'maven-settings-for-supply-chain-build-job'
[withMaven] use Maven settings.xml 'maven-settings-for-supply-chain-build-job' with Maven servers credentials provided by Jenkins (replaceAll: true):
     [mavenServerId: 'nexus.beescloud.com', jenkinsCredentials: 'beescloud-nexus-deployment-credentials', username: 'deployment', type: 'UsernamePasswordCredentialsImpl'],
     [mavenServerId: 'github.beescloud.com', jenkinsCredentials: 'github-enterprise-api-token', username: 'dev1', type: 'UsernamePasswordCredentialsImpl']

Maven Build Phases Publishers

Maven build executions inside the "withMaven(){...}" will be detected and Jenkins will transparently

(info) The detection of Maven builds require to use Maven 3.2+.



Required Jenkins Plugin (1)

Configuration to disable the feature

Since v2.3.0 (2)

Marker file to disable the feature (3)

Generated Artifact

Archiving and the fingerprinting of the artifacts and attached artifacts generated by the Maven build (jar, sources jar, javadocs jar...)


withMaven(options: [artifactsPublisher(disabled: true)],...)


Generated JUnit, Surefire and FailSafe reports

Publishing of the JUnit, Surefire and FailSafe reports generated by the Maven build

JUnit Plugin

withMaven(options: [junitPublisher(disabled: true)],...)


Generated Findbugs reports

Publishing of the Findbugs reports generated by the Maven build

FindBugs Plugin

withMaven(options: [findbugsPublisher(disabled: true)],...)


Tasks scanner report

Publishing of a report of the "FIXME" and "TODO" tasks found in the java source code. The keywords can be configured.

Jenkins Tasks Scanner Plugin

withMaven(options: [openTasksPublisher(disabled: true)],...)


Dependencies Fingerprinting

(since 2.5.0)

Fingerprint the Maven dependencies.

By default only the snapshot dependencies of scope compile, runtime and provided are fingerprinted.

 withMaven(options: [dependenciesFingerprintPublisher(disabled: true)],...)`.skip-fingerprint-maven-dependencies`

Concordion test report

(since 3.0.0)

Publishing of the Concordion test reports.

Publish the Concordion reports generated by the maven-surefire-plugin:test and the maven-failsafe-plugin:integration-test goals and located in the folder described by the system property "concordion.output.dir" as documented in Concordion > Integration > Java > Maven

(1) Jenkins Plugin to publish the reports on the Jenkins build page. If the plugin is not installed, then the MAven report is ignored.

(2) Download pipeline-maven-2.3.0-beta-1.hpi

(3) Experimental feature.
Marker file to temporarily disable the feature for a specific Maven build.
Typically used to disable a reporter for a specific build that would generate too much data for the default configuration of the reporter (e.g. too many generated artifacts...) or to workaround a bug in the "withMaven" waiting for a fix. These marker file must be located in the home directory of the build.

Global Default Configuration

The default configuration of the Maven settings, global settings and the publishers can be defined in the "Global Tool Configuration" screen.

Trigger downstream pipeline when a snapshot is built (since 3.0.0)

Trigger downstream pipeline that depend on Maven artifact generated by upstream pipelines.

(info) Notes

Linux, Windows and MacOSX support

The Pipeline Maven Plugin works with Linux, Windows and MacOSX build agents.

node ("windows") {
  stage ('Build') {

    git url: 'https://github.com/cyrille-leclerc/multi-module-maven-project'

    withMaven(...) {

      bat "mvn clean install"

    } // withMaven will discover the generated Maven artifacts, JUnit Surefire & FailSafe reports and FindBugs reports

Adding more Maven Reporters

The API for Maven reporters is still experimental. Please open a Request for Enhancement Jira issue to discuss how to add Maven reporters.

We want to quickly add reporters for CheckStyle, Jacoco...


How to disable the Maven Event Spy injected by the Pipeline Maven Plugin in Maven builds?

It may be convenient to temporarily disable the Maven Event Spy of the Jenkins Pipeline Maven plugin, for example for troubleshooting purpose.

You can disable the Maven Event Spy of the Jenkins Pipeline Maven plugin (making it no-op) doing one of the following:


   sh """
mvn package
   sh "mvn package"


Why do I see messages "[WARNING] Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS..." in the build logs?

The Jenkins Pipeline Maven Plugin uses the "JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS" environment variable to pass options to subsequent Maven builds such as the actual release build when invoking "mvn release:prepare release:perform". The plugins passes the properties "-Dmaven.ext.class.path" and "-Dorg.jenkinsci.plugins.pipeline.maven.reportsFolder".

When using the "JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS", the JVM outputs a message during its initialization.

With the Jenkins Pipeline Maven Plugin, this message looks like:

[WARNING] Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Dmaven.ext.class.path="/path/to/workspace/...@tmp/withMaven.../pipeline-maven-spy.jar" -Dorg.jenkinsci.plugins.pipeline.maven.reportsFolder="/path/to/workspace/...@tmp"

How do I capture the log file generated by the Jenkins Maven Event Spy

You can archive the XML log file generated by the Jenkins Maven Event Spy creating the marker file ".archive-jenkins-maven-event-spy-logs".


withMaven() {
	sh "mvn package"
	writeFile file: '.archive-jenkins-maven-event-spy-logs', text: ''
} // will discover the marker file ".archive-jenkins-maven-event-spy-log" and will archive the maven event spy log file maven-spy-....log	

How do I check the Maven settings in use by my build

You can dump the effective Maven settings of your pipeline using the Maven Help plugin and the "help:effective-settings" goal

   mvn help:effective-settings

Known Limitations

Maven and JDK installers do not work with "docker.image('xxx').inside{...}" as the docker step does not allow the use of Tool Installer, the preinstalled Maven and JDK on the docker image will be auto-discovered and used.
