Lab 06 - Build App Stage

Return to Workshop

Add Build App Stage to Pipeline Text File

Next, you will add the Build App Stage to your pipeline.

The git branch step will clone the openshift-tasks project with the git branch locally from your gogs server to your jenkins node. The jenkins node is leveraging the git jenkins plugin to communicate to gogs.

Please note that we are leveraging the eap-7 branch in our git project and not the master branch.

# Append to Jenkins Pipeline Configuration

In Builds > Pipelines > tasks-pipeline > Actions > Edit

Append the text below to the bottom of the Jenkins Pipeline Configuration. Please make sure to append to the beginning of the next line.

  stages {
    stage('Build App') {
      steps {
        git branch: 'eap-7', url: 'http://gogs:3000/gogs/openshift-tasks.git'
        script {
            def pom = readMavenPom file: 'pom.xml'
            version = pom.version
          sh "${mvnCmd} install -DskipTests=true"

Your Jenkinsfile should look like this.

Test Your Pipeline

If you’d like to do a test of first pipeline stage, add the following brackets at the end of your Jenkinsfile. Make sure to append to the beginning of the last line.


Your Jenkinsfile should look like this

Click Save

Go back to Builds > Pipelines

Click Start Pipeline

You should see your first stage run successfully.

Delete Brackets

Please delete the brackets you just added once testing is complete. We can add them later if you’d like to test your pipeline as you go along.
