Serval jobs on Jenkins?
Jenkins enables the creation of serval jobs. Imagine creating for each of your maven project at least 2 jobs:
- 1st job (trunk/ master) Is build with each commit. Does not run the integrationtests within your project
- 2nd job (nightly) Is build once at night. Like 1st job but runs also the integrationtests
Let’s say you have 8 different projects, which will result in at least 16 jobs. In a bigger company you usually share Jenkins with other teams, therefore serval other jobs exists on the same Jenkins server. So you want your own structured view. But using a list view which just gathers all your jobs in one view?
To improve clarity and transparency consider a nested view containing serval list views. And each list view represents a certain category.
Create the nested view
2) Add a New View to your new nested view. Choose List View as property.
