Jenkins JNLP Agent Docker image
This is an image for Jenkins agent (FKA "slave") using JNLP to establish connection.
This agent is powered by the Jenkins Remoting library, which version is being taken from the base Docker Agent image.
See Jenkins Distributed builds for more info.
To run a Docker container
docker run jenkinsci/jnlp-slave -url http://jenkins-server:port <secret> <agent name>
Optional environment variables:
JENKINS_URL: url for the Jenkins server, can be used as a replacement to
-urloption, or to set alternate jenkins URL
HOST:PORT) connect to this agent host and port instead of Jenkins server, assuming this one do route TCP traffic to Jenkins master. Useful when when Jenkins runs behind a load balancer, reverse proxy, etc.
JENKINS_SECRET: agent secret, if not set as an argument
JENKINS_AGENT_NAME: agent name, if not set as an argument
Enabled JNLP protocols
By default, the JNLP3-connect is disabled due to the known stability and scalability issues.
You can enable this protocol at your own risk using the
JNLP_PROTOCOL_OPTS=-Dorg.jenkinsci.remoting.engine.JnlpProtocol3.disabled=false property (the protocol should be enabled on the master side as well).
In Jenkins versions starting from
2.27 there is a JNLP4-connect protocol.
If you use Jenkins
2.32.x LTS, it is recommended to enable the protocol on your instance.
how to run docker commands and aws cli in my ecs slave.
how can i config remote workspace to make it works without java.io.IOException: Failed to mkdirs error
@alexvan @frangarcia 2.19.3 is ok.
Could somebody help me.
when i am trying to connect to jenkins its showing error:- Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Root directory not writable.
And i am not understanding how to enable JNLP3 Protocol.
Can someone help me please.
Go to the page for your slave:
Connect slave to Jenkins one of these ways:
launch agent Launch agent from browser on slave
Run from slave command line:
java -jar slave.jar -jnlpUrl http://<jenkins-server>/computer/<slave-name>/slave-agent.jnlp -secret f02c1009a70c12e6df36b5a23fbe4d50bc2a4dd12527c54480e6eb5753c7f7b6
And, there is the secret!
It isn't visible using the API or even jenkins-cli, though. I switched to creating a user and sending it with -jnlpCredentials username:token instead so that I an auto-provision slaves.
Is there any tutorial to make this slave works? I'm not able to connect to the master and I believe I'm missing some knowledge about the "secret".
Where can I find the secret? I don't find it anywhere in jenkins.
