Full Description

Jenkins JNLP Agent Docker Image based on CentOS 7

This image is based on the jenkinsci/docker-jnlp-slave:alpine but extends from CentOS 7 (centos:7.3.1611) instead of Alpine Linux (openjdk:8-jdk-alpine).
The agent (slave.jar) used in this image relies on the Jenkins Remoting library and is taken from the base Jenkins Agent Docker image.

This image is ready-to-use for the Jenkins Kubernetes Plugin.

See Jenkins Distributed builds for more information about how to use Jenkins agents.


Run a Docker container with

docker run mhelm/docker-centos-slave:latest -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 -url option, or to set alternate jenkins URL
  • JENKINS_TUNNEL: (HOST:PORT) connect to this agent's host and port instead of the Jenkins server directly, assuming this one routes TCP traffic to the Jenkins master
  • JENKINS_SECRET: agent secret, if not set as an argument
  • JENKINS_AGENT_NAME: agent name, if not set as an argument

Kubernetes Pipeline

In the Jenkinsfile use this Docker image in the containerTemplate of the Jenkins Kubernetes Plugin.

Avoid using the container step in the pipeline script as it makes the build unstable (see JENKINS-40825).

podTemplate(label: 'kubernetes', containers: [
      name: 'jnlp',
      image: 'mhelm/docker-centos-slave:latest',
      args: '${computer.jnlpmac} ${}',
      ttyEnabled: true,
      env: [
        containerEnvVar(key: ..., value: ...)
  ]) {
  node('kubernetes') {
