  • 1.  Jenkins & RA Plugin - Noticing Timeout Errors

    Posted Dec 23, 2016 03:36 AM

    Hello Community!

    Jenkins plugin with RA was pretty much working fine and was real quick in triggering the designed release template.

    Right now, it started taking huge time to trigger the designed release template via plugin.

    Not sure, if it's an issue with Jenkins Slave or with RA plugin! Can some one help me on the same?


    More debug info below:

    Hi Raghvendra,

    Many a times it happens that if we are using some parameters in actions/flows and due to some reason any of these parameters is not getting its value set then the timeout occurs. Check whether any such action/flow is waiting for some parameter value.

    Also, If you could check whether the deployment plan works fine when triggered manually? It will make sure that deployments are running fine and then you could focus only on plug-in part.


    Best regards,

    Thanks for your insights into this problem.

    Within the plugin, I made a mistake by providing wrong artifact name and release was not getting initialized.

    Artifact packing process was failing at pre-deployment (init) phase and was throwing timeout errors.

    Currently, it's been fixed and running without any issues.
