To add Git to Jenkins, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Install Git:

    • On the Jenkins server, download and install Git. You can download Git from the Git website ( https://git-scm.com/downloads).

    • Make sure that the git command is available on the PATH. You can test this by running git --version in a terminal window.

  2. Install the Git Plugin:

    • In Jenkins, go to "Manage Jenkins" > "Manage Plugins".

    • In the "Available" tab, search for "Git Plugin" and select it.

    • Click on the "Install" button.

    • Restart Jenkins after the installation is complete.

  3. Configure Git:

    • In Jenkins, go to "Manage Jenkins" > "Global Tool Configuration".

    • Scroll down to the "Git" section.

    • Click on the "Add Git" button.

    • Enter a name for the Git installation and specify the path to the git executable. • Click on the "Save" button to save the configuration.

    After you have completed these steps, you should be able to use Git in your Jenkins builds. You can specify the Git installation that you configured in the "Global Tool Configuration" page as a build tool in your Jenkins projects.

To integrate GitHub with a Jenkins pipeline, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Install the GitHub Plugin:

    • In Jenkins, go to "Manage Jenkins" > "Manage Plugins".

    • In the "Available" tab, search for "GitHub Plugin" and select it.

    • Click on the "Install" button.

    • Restart Jenkins after the installation is complete.

  2. Configure the GitHub Webhook:

    • In GitHub, go to the repository settings.

    • In the "Webhooks" section, click on the "Add webhook" button.

    • Enter the URL of your Jenkins instance and select the events that you want to trigger the webhook (e.g., push, pull request).

    • Click on the "Add webhook" button to save the configuration.

  3. Create a Jenkins pipeline and add a step to fetch the code from GitHub.

Here is an example of how you can fetch code from GitHub and build it in a Jenkins pipeline:

pipeline {
  agent any
  stages {
    stage('Fetch') {
      steps {
        git url: 'https://github.com/user/repo.git'
      }
    }
    stage('Build') {
      steps {
        // Build steps go here
      }
    }
  }
}

In this example, the git step is used to fetch the code from GitHub. The url parameter specifies the URL of the Git repository.

It is important to note that you will need to have the GitHub Plugin installed and the GitHub webhook configured for the pipeline to be triggered when code is pushed to or a pull request is created in the GitHub repository. You can configure the GitHub webhook as described in step 2.

To configure email notifications in Jenkins, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Install the Email Extension Plugin:

    • In Jenkins, go to "Manage Jenkins" > "Manage Plugins".

    • In the "Available" tab, search for "Email Extension Plugin" and select it.

    • Click on the "Install" button.

    • Restart Jenkins after the installation is complete.

  2. Configure the SMTP Server:

    • In Jenkins, go to "Manage Jenkins" > "Configure System".

    • Scroll down to the "Email Notification" section.

    • Enter the required information to configure the SMTP server (SMTP server, port, use SSL/TLS, username, and password).

    • Click on the "Test Configuration" button to make sure Jenkins can send emails through the specified SMTP server.

    • If the test is successful, click on the "Save" button to save the configuration.

  3. Configure the Email Notifications:

    • In your Jenkins project, go to "Configure" > "Post-build Actions" > "Editable Email Notification".

    • Enter the required information to configure the email notifications (recipients, subject, content).

    • You can use variables such as ${BUILD_STATUS} and ${BUILD_URL} in the subject and content to include build status and build URL in the email.

    • Click on the "Save" button to save the configuration. After you have completed these steps, Jenkins will send email notifications for the events that you have configured (e.g., build success, build failure). You can also customize the email templates and add additional triggers for the email notifications.

  4. Create a Jenkins pipeline and add a step to send an email notification. Here is an example of how you can send an email notification in a Jenkins pipeline:

     pipeline {
       agent any
       stages {
         stage('Build') {
           steps {
             // Build steps go here
           }
         }
         stage('Notify') {
           steps {
             script {
               // Send an email notification
               emailext attachmentsPattern: '**/build.log', body: 'The build has completed. See attached build log for details.', subject: 'Build Results - ${currentBuild.fullDisplayName}', to: 'recipient@example.com'
             }
           }
         }
       }
     }
    

In this example, the emailext step is used to send an email notification. The attachmentsPattern parameter specifies the pattern of the files to be attached to the email. The body parameter specifies the content of the email, and the subject parameter specifies the subject of the email. The to parameter specifies the recipients of the email. You can customize the email notification by using variables such as ${currentBuild.fullDisplayName} and ${currentBuild.status} in the subject and body of the mail.
