Making Jenkins to push to an another remote repository if build finishes successfully.


  1. Create a bare repository

    $ cd trader-stable.git
    $ git init --bare
    Initialized empty Git repository in /Users/Shared/trader-stable.git/
  2. Click Add Repository

  5. Enter stable to Name

    0f54d0a9 5317 40f5 9c60 ee13804a9904
  6. Click Add post-build actionGit Publisher

$ pwd
$ echo 'push if succeeds test' >> hi.txt
$ git commit -am 'push if succeeds test'
$ git push origin master

Jenkins said Pushing tag 8 to repo stable

3e1e0e9a 2732 4054 8a20 82da0f67a7ab
$ git remote add stable /Users/Shared/trader-stable.git
$ git fetch stable
remote: Counting objects: 1, done.
remote: Total 1 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
Unpacking objects: 100% (1/1), done.
From /Users/Shared/trader-stable
 * [new tag]         8          -> 8


Good info! This is exactly what I needed as well. Does this push only tags or can it even push the whole repository? I tried several times and I see only tags on my second repository.

What if my Tag name already exists and If I could see error like below.

> C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\git.exe tag -l 9 # timeout=10
ERROR: Step ‘Git Publisher’ failed: Tag 9 already exists and Create Tag is specified, so failing.

So you are pushing to a local file system? Pushing to a remote server seems more helpful.

Git publisher is not present in Jenkins v.2.176.1 or the git plugin v.3.10.1

can you please help me to provide the process steps to publish the artifacts into GitHub server using Jenkins git publisher, Actually i am trying to push the artifacts into Azure local git not sure how to do it.
What would be the Target remote name? and where the git publisher will get the portal login details?

Let See we are working on Multi pipeline project for CI-CD for one project we are using multiple repository.
Example : we have
1. one repository having data 'a' in A repository. its also store the Jenkins command.
2. second for some data 'b', store in B repository.
I am performing some addition between 'a' (A) and 'b' (B) let se output is 'c' .
now I wanted to push the expected output 'c' to the different repository C.

In (C) repository I already have some data. I don't want to create bare repository.

the error i was facing is
/jenkins/workspace/A@tmp/durable-ssasd/script.sh: 5: /jenkins/workspace/A@tmp/durable-ssasd/script.sh: git: not found
