Jenkins is one of the most popular continuous integrations platforms used in software development. Sauce Labs provides an official plugin to help you integrate your cloud testing with Jenkins, which can be used to:
- Provide a user interface for populating environment variables on the Jenkins server (such as your platform configurations or Sauce username and access key)
- Automatically launch Sauce Connect when it is enabled for a project
- Handle reporting between Jenkins and Sauce
Sauce First, Jenkins Second
Make sure your tests run on Sauce without Jenkins before attempting to install and configure CI!
