I'm looking for a way to start a Jenkins job from Jira. The idea is for the job to be triggered by a Jira workflow status transition. This job isn't the first one in the pipeline, what i mean is that this is a downstream job, which has also more downstream jobs that should be triggered. What's the best way to do it?
I have implemented this in 2 different ways (my 2nd option is what you want but take a look at my 1st option)
1) Use SCM Polling: This is ideal for a repository with a large user base where doing continuous builds is a nightmare. (My team host 4200~ SVN/GIT repos combined and one specific repo have 1,800 developers on it). We have setup a build time every 3:00pm where all tickets with "custom field Build Request = Yes" will be included in the build.
2) Use a Post Function Script - I have setup a project with a post-function that will run a script (I used groovy) that will POST to the Jenkins URL. My Jenkins project is using buildToken for authentication. You can also use shell script if you want, just curl POST to the jenkins URL then you are good to go.
Both of these assuming that your SVN/GIT Repository is integrated with JIRA and your Jenkins instance has the JIRA Plugin installed.
