More Jenkins plug-in customization tasks

You can extend your Jenkins integration with rules to merge data from different sources, custom topology display conventions, and the use of templates for the automated generation of topologies.

You first install and configure the Jenkins plug-in, before extending its functionality as described here.

Trouble: For useful Jenkins troubleshooting information, see troubleshooting.

Customizing the Jenkins topologies

You can customize how your Jenkins topologies are displayed in a number of ways, either by using the Jenkins customizations supplied with IBM Cloud Pak® for Watson AIOps, or by creating your own custom display elements.

Creating Jenkins topology templates

Over time topologies generated through a specific Jenkins Observer job may grow, including the information from different Jenkins builds. You can use the IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps topology template functions to create meaningful, scoped views per build.
