Executing an AWA Job from Jenkins using the Jenkins CDA Plugin

  • 1.  Executing an AWA Job from Jenkins using the Jenkins CDA Plugin

    Posted 11-01-2018 03:11 PM

    Has anyone tried to remotely execute an Automic (v12.0 AWA) job from Jenkins using the CDA plugin for Jenkins? We have written a job in Automic that completes a deployment step and would like for Jenkins to execute that job.

     

    We've installed and configured the WebServices WAR file on the AE web server, and can communicate with that via SOAP calls.

     

    Here is the plugin we're trying to use: Plug-in for Jenkins

     

    Thanks!

    I believe that Jenkins plugin communicates with CDA WebServices (part of CDA ASP.NET app running on IIS).

     

    @Automic support, feel free to correct me if my assumptions is wrong.

     

    If you only have AWA without CDA, I am not sure if that plugin will work for you.

     

    We do use that Jenkins Plugin successfully with 12.2 CDA

    No additional installation of WebServices WAR file on AE/AWI side was required.

     

    Hopefully this helps.

    Jenkins Plugin works with CDA-server but you can use AE-REST to trigger workflows in AE.
    See  AE REST API documentation

    Thanks for your help. I'll look into the REST API but it looks like I'll have to upgrade to 12.2 first to do use it.

     

    Thanks!
