Jenkins CI

Bitbar Run In Cloud (previously Testdroid Run-in-Cloud) Jenkins plugin can be used to launch test runs directly from Jenkins job. It is an open source project available on Github.

After plugin installation and restarting Jenkins, plugin can be configured in Jenkins Configuration page. The plugin adds a new build step that can be used in any Jenkins job to launch builds in Bitbar Testing cloud.


Open Jenkins main configuration page(Manage Jenkins -> Configure System) in the ‘Testdroid Run-in-Cloud’ section and fill necessary Bitbar Testing account information. Click Authorize button to validate account details.


Run In Cloud - Build step

There are two ways for Jenkins plugin to get notification from Bitbar Testing about finished test runs.


Jenkins is polling Bitbar Testing for results. Test results are copied to Jenkins workspace after the tests are finished.



Bitbar Testing sends post message to defined URL when test run is finished. RiC listens the message in default location and downloads results when post message arrives. The listened URL can be changed.
