2. In the new item page, assign a name to the project

3. Scroll down until the bottom of the page and use the last option to create the new item from other existing. Insert gCubeGitHubProjectTemplate as input (it should auto-complete).

and confirm with OK.

4. In the new project page, you need to:

  • uncheck the "Disable this project" checkbox
  • provide the URL to the GitHub repo to build

That should be enough to try to build the project with a Jenkins job.


Source Code Management and Poll Triggers


In "Build triggers" section:

  • check "GitHub hook trigger for GITScm polling"
  • check "Poll SCM" option with no schedule defined. This setup basically tells Jenkins to poll your GitHub repo only when requested via the webhook.
