Deploying after integration test with Jenkins

Posted on Wednesday Mar 05, 2014 at 04:09PM in Jenkins


  • I want to deploy the production resource after integration test.
  • But some resources are environment-specific.
  • So, after integration test succeeded, I want to replace such resources for production version.

How to achieve it?

  • The deployment job is need to be a parameterized job.
  • After integration test completed, then another mvn starts at post-build step of Jenkins.
    • This mvn does only package goal with no tests.
  • Deployment will be executed by SSH deploy plugin at post-build action of Jenkins.

How to apply this way to a Jenkins job?

  1. Create a parameterized job that can integration-test and deployment be done successfully.
  2. Go to job configuration page
  3. Click “Add post-build step”
  4. Click “Invoke top-level Maven targets”
  5. Select “Run only if build succeeds”
  6. Select Maven Version “Default”
    • Not (Default) which one with enclosed in parentheses. it won't work.
  7. Enter “Goals”
  8. Click “Advanced…”
  9. Enter “POM”, “Properties”.
    • “hogeApp.environmentId=prod” triggers to Maven to include production resources in my pom.xml.
  10. Ensure that there is a post-build action which deploys the artifact to the production environment.
  11. Click “Save” of bottom of the page.

  • Deployment succeeded as expectedly.
  • After integration-test completed, another mvn was kicked, and it builds the package for production without testing once again.
