Updated Jenkins CI Plugin for Sauce

Posted Jul 29th, 2015

Because enterprises are under extreme internal and external pressure to deliver better software, faster, development teams are transitioning to new software delivery processes such as Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD). Both practices have proven their value in accelerating software production beyond traditional approaches, yet achieving continuous testing to support these processes is often the most difficult hurdle. Our updated Jenkins Plugin offers developers the combined power of the Sauce platform with Jenkins CI, the world’s leading CI tool, to further simplify and accelerate the development process.

The latest release of the Jenkins CI Plugin offers a set of rich features to help developers better utilize their CI systems to increase developer productivity so they can release better software, faster.

Here’s a summary of what’s new:

Updated UI The latest release of the Sauce OnDemand Jenkins plugin includes an updated UI with features to make it easier to run tests faster in parallel and understand the results.

Updated Browser Selection Tool This makes it easier to speed testing by running tests in parallel. The new UI makes it very simple to select multiple platforms and browsers at one time.

Enhance Reporting Reporting enhancements include test job details so that users get more detailed information about their test results on the Jenkins build page. Users now can view a detailed list of Sauce jobs in Jenkins by name, OS, browser and version, pass/fail status, link to the test video and log.

Latest Version of Sauce Connect Includes the latest version of Sauce Connect v4.3.9 (Sauce Labs’ secure tunnel) that gives users the latest security enhancements when running tests on applications located behind their firewall.

Automated Support Log Generation Users can now create a zip file that contains the Sauce Connect log and Jenkins build output that makes support and debugging tests easier.

Updated Jenkins Build Messaging Includes log information to indicate the status of the job such as when it has started, stopped and finished processing. This gives you more detailed information about the status of the job so you can debug more effectively.
