Jenkins Integration

The integration of Jenkins with Rally Software and GitHub gives the development team complete control over the codes being committed in the source code repository. It also creates complete traceability for all work items in Rally Software. With complete traceability for each work item in the ecosystem, it is easier for enterprises to fulfill compliance requirements.

Jenkins – Rally Software & GitHub Integration Overview

In an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem, the choice of systems and the collaboration between the cross-functional teams play a great role. While the choice of systems impacts the productivity of a team, the cross-functional collaboration brings in collective wisdom to take better decisions, faster.

Best-of-breed systems such as Jenkins, Rally Software and GitHub bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem. When GitHub is integrated with Rally Software and Jenkins, all stakeholders have real-time visibility into the commits made by the development team. It is also easier to enforce authentic commits against each work item and access the changes/edits made to the commit files from Rally Software itself.

How Jenkins – Rally Software – GitHub integration is beneficial for an enterprise

  • Track commit volume, track commit trends and edits/changes to commit files in real time
  • Enforce authentic commits to make sure each commit is happening against a scheduled and open workitem
  • Eliminate manual effort to close Rally Software workitem by automating the state transition on GitHub commit

With Jenkins + Rally Software Software + GitHub integration, enterprises can:

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Jenkins, Rally Software and GitHub

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Jenkins with Rally Software and GitHub.It ensures that all data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. All the details related to a commit made against a work-item in Rally Software can be tracked from Rally Software itself. For example, for each commit that development team makes in GitHub,GitHub synchronizes a ‘commit entity’ linked to the specific requirement is back to Rally Software. Each ‘commit entity’ includes information such as ‘who did the commit?’, ‘when was the commit done?’, and ‘which part of the code was committed?’. The integration of Jenkins also ensures elimination of developer’s effort to close Rally Software workitem by automating the state transition on GitHub commit.

Use Case: Jenkins integration with Rally Software and GitHub

Problem statement: No control on backlogs getting committed – therefore, anyone can commit on a defect that is not even present in the active sprint.

Solution: If Rally Software, GitHub, and Jenkins are integrated using OpsHub Integration Manager, then OpsHub Integration Manager can put a check that user can only commit on a defect that is present in active sprint.

  1. A developer works on a ‘user story’ in Rally Software and runs a test case against it. The test case passes.
  2. The developer then commits against the ‘defect’ in GitHub.
  3. As the ‘defect’ against which the developer has committed is not in active sprint, when Jenkins runs a pre-scheduled test on it, the commit fails.
  4. The status of the commit synchronizes to Rally Software.

Benefits of integration for Jenkins, Rally Software and GitHub users

Jenkins and Rally Software users

  • Complete traceability from Rally Software to source code in GitHub
  • Visibility into the volume, quality of commits, and commit trends in real-time
  • Automation introduced through Jenkins saves time
  • Reduced dependency on manual communication to track the completion of a task

GitHub users

  • Each commit can be traced back to its respective workitem at any given point in time from GitHub itself
  • Enforced checkpoints ensure that no mandatory steps/checks are missed while making a commit – this leads to high success rate for commits
  • Automation introduced through Jenkins saves time

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Jenkins, GitHub and Jira

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Jenkins, GitHub and Jira bi-directionally. It ensures that all historical and current data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. All the details related to a commit made against a work-item in Jira can be tracked from Jira itself. For example, for each commit that development team makes in GitHub, GitHub synchronizes a ‘commit entity’ linked to the specific requirement id back to Jira. Each ‘commit entity’ includes information such as ‘who did the commit?’, ‘when was the commit done?’,and ‘which part of the code was committed?’. The integration of Jenkins also ensures elimination of developer’s effort to close Jira workitem by automating the state transition on GitHub commit.

Jenkins – qTest & Digital.ai Agility Integration Overview

In an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem, the choice of systems and the collaboration between the cross-functional teams play a great role. While the choice of systems impacts the productivity of a team, the cross-functional collaboration helps the teams get complete context of the business requirements.

Best-of-breed systems such as Jenkins, qTest, and Digital.ai Agility (Formerly VersionOne) help enterprises keep the business and product development teams focused on customer priorities, quality of delivery, and also, help automate some steps in the delivery process to accelerate the delivery cycle.

How Jenkins – qTest – Digital.ai Agility integration is beneficial for an enterprise

  • Accelerate delivery cycle by automating some test process
  • Access to QA plans and defects in real time
  • Real-time updates on the status of a story, its estimated time of delivery, and any risks that might delay the impending release
  • Complete context of the customer requirement and visibility into codes written by the development team & test cases written by QA team
  • Coordinate on the delivery timelines seamlessly with concurrent updates on changes

With Jenkins + qTest + Digital.ai Agility integration, enterprises can:

Jenkins qTest VersionOne Integration

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Jenkins, qTest and Digital.ai Agility

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Jenkins, qTest, and Digital.ai Agility (Formerly VersionOne) – all the three systems with each other bi-directionally. It ensures that all historical and current data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. All ‘stories’ from Digital.ai Agility automatically synchronize to qTest and all defects associated with the ‘requirement’ synchronize back to Digital.ai Agility. Jenkins helps in triggering certain automated quality checks in the ecosystem before a user story/feature is committed.

Jenkins qTest VersionOne Entities Mapping

Use Case: Jenkins integration with Digital.ai Agility and qTest

Problem statement: The QA team wants to automate some of the testing process before source code commit.

Solution: With Digital.ai Agility (Formerly VersionOne) getting integrated with Jenkins and qTest, the QA team will be able to run specific test/regression suits after completion of a user story/feature and before it is committed.

  1. An automation script for quality testing is written in Jenkins which is supposed to run when any ‘defect’ in qTest is marked ‘resolved’.
  2. The quality control team runs test case on a ‘defect’ and marks it ‘resolved’.
  3. Jenkins, automatically, runs the scheduled test on the ‘defect’.
  4. The test results are synchronized to qTest irrespective of whether the test is successful or not.
  5. Based on the test result, the developer would know whether to trigger the build or not.

Benefits of integration for Jenkins, Digital.ai Agility and qTest users

Jenkins & Digital.ai Agility users

  • Visibility into QA schedule and test cases in advance
  • Complete context of the defects and their severity
  • No dependency on manual communication for making business decisions
