This is just the list of steps that I’ve made to get a Windows build machine execute a Jenkins Job (running inside TomCat) clone a Mercurial repository hosted on BitBucket with SSH authentication.
- Install TomCat (I’ve used the 7)
- Install Jenkins on TomCat
- Create a Windows User for executing the TomCat (Lets reference it as CI_USER, but you can name it as you like)
- Set the TomCat process to execute with the CI_USER
- Log in on the machine with the CI_USER
- Download putty zip so that you can create a SSH key.
- Generate a key using “PUTTYGEN.EXE”
- Copy the Public-key and add it as a Deployment keys on your Repository settings on BitBucket.
- Save the private key without a passphrase.
- Install TortoiseHG on the Jenkins Machine.
- Create a user Mercurial settings file on C:\Documents and Settings\CI_USER\Mercurial.ini (Look here for references)
- Add this code to the file
ssh=”C:\PATH_TO_TORTOISE_HG_INSTALL_ROOT\TortoisePlink.exe” -batch -i “C:\PATH_TO_PRIVATE_KEY_FILE_CREATED_WITH_PUTTYGEN.ppk”
- I’m not really sure if this step is really mandatory, but do it just in case:
- Manually clone your repo using TortoiseHG. Make sure you use the ssh url from bitbucket as source and some temporary folder as destination.
- Accept Bitbucket certificate and add it to the cache (Click yes if any window appears regarding that)
- Install the Mercurial plugin on Jenkins.
- Go to jenkins and configure your job to point to the ssh url
- Happy CI
