We have updated our OnDemand plugin for Jenkins with explicit support for Jenkins Pipeline. This update enables development and testing teams to easily create, manage, and run automated tests using scripts on Jenkins, resulting in faster testing.
The newly enhanced OnDemand plugin enables Sauce Labs users to skip the Jenkins UI and run tests directly via scripts. Previously, users had to work within the Jenkins UI to create testing tasks. While this is initially convenient, as automation grows and becomes more complex, the process of creating testing tasks becomes more complex, too. Now OnDemand enables testers to automate releases for complex and non-sequential tasks that previously required manual intervention.
Key benefits of the update include:
Create scripts to automate Jenkins operations
Save time by scripting test sequences that can automate testing, retry tests automatically and run processes in parallel. Developers and QA can more easily customize their Jenkins workflows and reporting results.
Automatically create test scripts for Jenkins
Use the Jenkins snippet generator to easily create Pipeline scripts to execute Sauce Commands via Jenkins. Users don’t need to know how to script in Pipeline – simply copy the code snippets to program workflows
