Configuring automatic build by push for git repository

Posted on Sunday Mar 01, 2015 at 07:15PM in Jenkins

We can start the build by send request to following URL.



In my case, Jenkins is deployed in /, and the server is running on port 18080. so the command to start a build of the job named trader will be:

curl http://localhost:18080/job/trader/build

So put following shell script into $ORIGIN_BARE_REPOSITORY/hooks/post-receive and execute chmod +x post-receive.

curl http://localhost:18080/job/trader/build


Push some modification as follows:

$ echo hook test >> hi.txt
$ git add hi.txt
$ git commit -m 'hook test'
$ git push origin master

Check the build was run automatically as expected, and the output.

This works fine if I have a single branch. What if I have 3 branches say v1.0, v2.0 & v3.0 and I push in v2.0. How do I ensure that when I push to v2.0 only that branch should be built.

Hi Vipin thanks for the comment. Unfortunately I have no idea to ensure that. I recommend you to consult StackOverflow.
