CloudBees is Giving Away Free Jenkins Plugins!

MongoDB Atlas is a database as a service that makes it easy to deploy, manage, and scale MongoDB. So you can focus on innovation, not operations. Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

Cloudbees has announced the free release of a few proprietary plugins for the Jenkins community.  Jenkins is a continuous deployment tool tool written in Java, and Cloudbees has developed a few useful plugins that can be deployed on cloud-based jobs.  These plugins should be useful for cloudy Java-types who crave easier job management.  Here are some details of the two proprietary Jenkins plugins that are now free for your use:

The Folders plugin enables users to create hierarchal folders for managing a lot of jobs.  Other plugins have also been updated for compatibility with this plugin.

The Backup Scheduling plugin enables you to back up job configurations using CloudBees DEV@cloud

A recent CloudBee blog post also announced a couple useful open source plugins. 

The File Leak Detector plugin shows you a list of open jobs, and the Credentials plugin allows for the storage of credentials.  

These should be useful to Jenkins users - here's what the CloudBees team has to say about them:

. . . these plugins deliver even more power into the hands of every Jenkins user.  You can leverage the folder capabilities to organize jobs and the power of the cloud to capture the state of your Jenkins deployments. The plugins also make it even simpler for you to use the CloudBees platform to build and stage application code for real-time testing, delivering higher quality software more quickly. -- CloudBees Blog
