Use Hosted GitOps with any popular Continuous Integration (CI) solution, not just with Codefresh CI. Jenkins is one of the third-party CI platform/tools that you can connect to Codefresh for deployment with image enrichment and reporting.

For information on how to use the image reporting action in your Jenkins pipeline and how to configure the integration, see CI Integrations.

Jenkins-Codefresh integration arguments

The table describes the arguments to connect Codefresh Classic to Codefresh.

Argument Description Required/Optional/Default
CF_RUNTIME_NAME The runtime to use for the integration. If you have more than one runtime, select the runtime from the list. Required
CF_API_KEY The API key to authenticate the Codefresh Classic user to Codefresh. Generate the key for the integration. Required
CF_CONTAINER_REGISTRY_INTEGRATION The name of the container registry integration created in Codefresh where the image is stored. To create a container registry integration if you don’t have one, click Create Container Registry Integration, and then configure the settings. See Container registry integrations. Optional
CF_JIRA_INTEGRATION The name of the issue tracking integration created in Codefresh to use to enrich the image. Relevant only if Jira enrichment is required for the image. If you don’t have a Jira integration, click Create Atlassian Jira Integration and configure settings (see Jira integration). Optional
CF_IMAGE The image to be enriched and reported in Codefresh. Pass the [account-name]/[image-name]:[tag] built in your CI. Required
CF_GIT_BRANCH The Git branch with the commit and PR (pull request) data to add to the image. Pass the Branch from the event payload used to trigger your action. Required
CF_GIT_REPO The Git repository with the configuration and code used to build the image. Required
CF_GIT_PROVIDER The Git provider for the integration, and can be either GiitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket. Required
CF_GITHUB_TOKEN The GitHub authentication token. The token must have repo scope. See Git tokens. Required
CF_GITHUB_API_URL The URL to the GitHub developer site. Required
CF_GITLAB_TOKEN The GitLab token for authentication. Required
CF_GITLAB_HOST_URL The URL to the GitLab instance. Optional
CF_BITBUCKET_USERNAME The username for the Bitbucket or the BitBucket Server (on-prem) account. Required
CF_BITBUCKET_PASSWORD The password for the Bitbucket or the BitBucket Server (on-prem) account. Required
CF_BITBUCKET_HOST_URL Relevant for Bitbucket Server accounts only. The URL address of your Bitbucket Server instance. Example, https://bitbucket-server:7990. Required
CF_JIRA_PROJECT_PREFIX Relevant only when CF_JIRA_INTEGRATION is defined. The Jira project prefix that identifies the ticket number to use. Required
CF_JIRA_MESSAGE Relevant only when CF_JIRA_INTEGRATION is defined. The Jira issue IDs matching the string to associate with the image. Required
CF_JIRA_FAIL_ON_NOT_FOUND Relevant only when CF_JIRA_INTEGRATION is defined. The report image action when the CF_JIRA_MESSAGE is not found. When set to true, the report image action is failed. Required

Jenkins integration logs

View and analyze logs for Jenkins through the Logs tab. When a Jenkins pipeline is run, it is added to the Logs tab.
You can:

  • Filter by status or by date range to view a subset of actions
  • Navigate to the build file in Jenkins, and view the Codefresh report image step.

Build in Jenkins

The Run column includes the link to the pipeline in Jenkins.

Here is an example of the Jenkins log for the pipeline with the report image step.
