Open source Jenkins plug-in offers automated build processes for Salesforce Commerce Cloud projects
Québec City, Canada – December 13, 2017
– OSF Digital
announced today the launch of its new native Jenkins plug-in, BUILD & DEPLOY
for Salesforce Commerce Cloud. Being the first release in the set of plug-ins, this solution is used to deploy builds to Salesforce Commerce Cloud’s continuous integration sandbox, development or staging instance.
BUILD & DEPLOY is a total rewrite of its previous version, Salesforce Commerce Cloud Build Suite. Based on the experience gathered through years of maintaining the previous plug-in, the OSF team came up with an improved code. The new version is fully customizable and can be used as a standalone plug-in, in conjunction with Salesforce Commerce Cloud Build Suite, as well as with other custom scripts. BUILD & DEPLOY is compatible with both the classic way of running jobs in Jenkins, and the new method that is based on pipeline flows.
“While the previous version had a broad functionality, the focal point of BUILD & DEPLOY is solely on the activities of building and deploying code,” says Daniel Anechitoaie, Senior Solutions Architect at OSF Digital. “BUILD & DEPLOY is the first in a series of plug-ins, that will be able to do one thing and do it well. They’re like Lego pieces – they’re totally flexible, you can use them in various ways and combinations for your specific use case.”
BUILD & DEPLOY is easy to install and configure and can be seamlessly adjusted to fit a chosen workflow. As a native plug-in for Jenkins rather than a set of scripts, it tightly integrates with it providing the best experience. Jenkins users can see the code and upon downloading the suite can receive notifications about updates.
“Our teams always work on improving the services and solutions that we provide,” says Gerry Szatvanyi, CEO at OSF Digital. “We’re certain that our new open source plug-in will make deployment efforts easier for many people, thus simplifying site development process and inspiring for innovation.”
