The following implementation is an alternative to using Jenkins CI with Jenkins if it is not possible to use Pulse. The plugin represents a simpler less feature rich integration.

For more information on the Pulse implementation please refer to Pulse experts: Running the Jenkins CI expert.

The following PDF document serves as a comprehensive introduction to using the Jenkins plugin and covers the following:

  - Install Jenkins against an existing Tomcat installation
  - Configure to run with Dimensions CM
  - Install the Plugin
  - Create a Jenkins Project
  - Integrate the Jenkins Project with a CM Project/Stream
  - Extend to produce a closed loop build
