Jenkins is a continuous integration and continuous delivery application that you can use to build and test your software projects continuously. Jenkins OCI Plugin is now available on Github and it allows users to access and manage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resources from Jenkins. A Jenkins master instance with Jenkins OCI Plugin can spin up slaves (Instances) on demand within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and remove the slaves automatically once the Job completes.
After installing Jenkins OCI Plugin, you can add a OCI Cloud option and a Template with the desired Shape, Image, Domain, etc. The Template will have a Label that you can use in your Jenkins Job. Multiple Templates are supported. The Template options include Labels, Domains, Credentials, Shapes, Images, Slave Limits, and Timeouts.
Below you will find instructions for building and installing the plugin, which is available on GitHub: github.com/oracle/jenkins-oci-plugin
