Configuring Jenkins Users

Jenkins does not (as of this writing) support integration of the authentication system with Trac, or anything else at all really. So when a new user needs to be added as a Jenkins administrator, it has to be done manually.

  • Have the user check in some code and then make sure Jenkins performs a build. This will get their username to appear in the full list of Jenkins users.
  • Modify the user and give them the correct name and a temporary password (the user can change that after that).
