Hudson and Jenkins integration into Trac


Hudson logo Jenkins logo

This plugin integrates Jenkins (or the discontinued Hudson) build results into the Trac timeline and (optionally) provides a navbar menu to link to the Jenkins instance.

For additional integration between Trac and Jenkins see Jenkins Trac Plugin and Jenkins Trac Publisher Plugin.

NOTE: For compatibility reasons the Plugin is named HudsonTracPlugin and not JenkinsTracPlugin and the config section is hudson and not jenkins.

General instructions on installing Trac plugins can be found on the TracPlugins page.

As with all plugins, you must enable it explicitly, either via Trac's Admin panel (Admin -> General -> Plugins) or by directly editing your trac.ini file:

hudsontrac.* = enabled


There are the following options you can configure in your trac.ini file under the section [hudson]. If you have the IniAdminPlugin installed they will show up on the Trac Admin page under hudson:

The url of the top-level Jenkins page if you want to display all jobs in the timeline, or a job or module url if you want only display builds from a single job or module. Examples: http://localhost/jenkins/ (for builds from all jobs), http://localhost/jenkins/job/build_foo/ (for builds from the build_foo job only). The default is http://localhost/jenkins/.
The path part of the API, either "api/python" or "api/json". The default is api/json.
The interfacename (i.e. Jenkins) to use. The default is Jenkins.
The label for the nav menu entry (default value will be translated). The default is Builds.
The username to use when accessing Jenkins; leave empty if no authentication is needed. Default is empty.
The password to use when accessing Jenkins; leave empty if no authentication is needed. Default is empty.
The API Token to use to access Jenkins. This takes precedence over any password and is the preferred mechanism if you are running Jenkins 1.426 or later and Jenkins is enforcing authentication (as opposed to, for example, a proxy in front of Jenkins).
If set to true then display the builds of individual modules in the timeline too; otherwise only builds of jobs are displayed. Default is false.
The url of the Jenkins page to link to from the trac mainnav; if empty, no entry is created in the mainnav. Example: /jenkins/. The default is /jenkins/.
The label to use for the above link, can contain %(interfacename) to be replaced by the interface name option. The default is %(interfacename)s Builds.
If set to true then open the above Jenkins page in a new tab (or window) instead of in the current tab/window. Not used if main_page is not set. Default is false.
Display a green ball instead of the standard blue one for successful builds. Default is false.
Whether to display the build descriptions for each build instead of the canned "Build finished successfully" etc messages. Default is true.
If true, builds that have started but not yet completed will also be displayed in the timeline.
If set to true then each build entry in the timeline will also list all the changesets that triggered the build.
Display the culprit(s) for each build. This is a comma-separated list of zero or more of the following tokens: starter, author, authors, culprit, culprits. starter is the user that started the build, if any; author is the author of the first commit, if any; authors is the list of authors of all commits; culprit is the first of what Jenkins thinks are the culprits that caused the build; and culprits is the list of all culprits. If this option is a list, the first non-empty value is used. Example: starter,authors (this would show who started the build if it was started manually, else list the authors of the commits that triggered the build if any, else show no author for the build).

Example trac.ini:

job_url = http://localhost/jenkins/job/build_foo/
main_page = /jenkins/job/build_foo/
alternate_success_icon = true

Note that it is not necessary to specify this hudson section if you are using the default values.

Lastly, make sure you assign users the BUILD_VIEW permission for them to be able to see the builds in the timeline.
