Jenkins integration with VSO

I have been working with the Jenkins build management system since last July and helping our internal Java, iOS and some .NET development teams to implement Continuous Integration. The objective is to also coordinate their builds with SonarQube so we can get cross-collection visibility to status in some projects that span multiple teams.

Microsoft has recently released the ability to have Jenkins builds in VSO through service hooks:



If we had this for TFS on premises a year ago we might have followed a different route for our Jenkins/SonarQube implementation, as it is the composite report of all our application builds and deployments (through pipeline statuses) that we are mostly interested in.

For my own work in the cloud I have been using the new fantastically flexible new Build.vNext system. And that composite Build/Release report: you get it almost effortless if using VSO/Azure, in contrast with our current solution which is manually intensive.

Let’s see how our work evolves. I will be looking at this again, specially if it makes into TFS on premises in the near future.
