Setting up the CI Pipeline Agent on IBM Z as a Started Task

White Papers


Orchestrators play a critical role in Continuous Integration pipelines, managing the various tasks that must be performed to build applications.

Many CI orchestrators rely on a server/agent architecture, where the server distributes work to the target agents running on build environments. For CI builds of mainframe applications, the agent generally needs to be installed on z/OS. This paper provides guidance how to setup the CI pipeline agent on IBM z/OS as a Started Task.

The recently included appendix describes the security definitions to leverage RACF keyrings for validating the certificate presented by the CI server.
