Python Jenkins is a python wrapper for the Jenkins REST API which aims to provide a more conventionally pythonic way of controlling a Jenkins server. It provides a higher-level API containing a number of convenience functions.
We like to use python-jenkins to automate our Jenkins servers. Here are some of the things you can use it for:
- Create new jobs
- Copy existing jobs
- Delete jobs
- Update jobs
- Get a job's build information
- Get Jenkins master version information
- Get Jenkins plugin information
- Start a build on a job
- Create nodes
- Enable/Disable nodes
- Get information on nodes
- Create/delete/reconfig views
- Put server in shutdown mode (quiet down)
- List running builds
- Delete builds
- Wipeout job workspace
- Create/delete/update folders1
- Set the next build number2
- Install plugins
- and many more..
$ sudo python setup.py install
- git clone https://opendev.org/jjb/python-jenkins
Patches are submitted via Gerrit at:
Please do not submit GitHub pull requests, they will be automatically closed.
The python-jenkins developers communicate in the
#openstack-jjb channel on Freenode's IRC network.

Writing a patch
Be sure that you lint code before created an code review. The easiest way to do this is to install git pre-commit hooks.
Installing without setup.py
Then install the required python packages using pip:
$ sudo pip install python-jenkins
