MES Jenkins Plugin

The MES Toolchain in Automated Deployment

With the MES Jenkins Plugin, you can use the MES toolchain in a continuous integration environment and automatically verify your software models to comply with quality boundaries. Given that the configuration via the Jenkins UI is so easy, you do not have to read about the APIs of each tool in great detail. Via the Jenkins User Interface you can select a model and define whether a static or dynamic analysis should be run on the model. By means of published reports and logs, you can easily keep track of the quality status.

User Requirements

In order to run the MES Tools via Jenkins you need a continuous integration license for the MES tool that you want to run automations on (MES Model Examiner® and/or MES Test Manager®) as well as a Jenkins installation on an internal server as an automation environment.
