Installing & configuring Jenkins in Opkey

Jenkins is a platform-independent tool for continuous integration, supporting ongoing software delivery through flexible build pipelines and integration with various testing and deployment technologies. 

Let's have a look at how you can install and configure with Opkey. 

Download Jenkins by clicking Here: 

Jenkins.war file gets downloaded. To install it on your machine, open the command prompt and type "java –jar". Give a space. Next, drag and drop the downloaded Jenkins.war file onto the command prompt window, as illustrated below:  


Within a few seconds, the installation process is completed, as indicated below. At this point, you can find an Admin Password generated by Jenkins at the specified location. 




After successful Jenkins installation: 

1. Open your browser and type localhost:8080. 

2. Enter the Administrator password (located at the specified location). 

3. Click Continue. 




We'll dive right into it by clicking Selecting Plugins to install for now. 



Here, you can view and install available plugins. You can also deselect any plugins to skip their installation, as Opkey does not require them. Click "Install" to proceed. 





After installing the Plugins, a new window opens. Create a Username and Password and confirm the password. Then click on Save and Continue



Jenkins is ready to be used. Click on Start using Jenkins. 




Jenkin's home page opens as shown below. Click on Manage Jenkins for configuration. 




Let us install Jenkins Server as Windows Service, as mentioned below. 

Note: On adding it to the Windows service list, Jenkins will start automatically with default startup programs. 

Go to the ‘Manage Jenkins' page and click on ‘Install as Windows Service’.

In a matter of seconds, the installation process is finished. Now restart the Jenkins by typing /restart in the URL where a local host is written. 




View Jenkins in the list of Task Manager, which is installed as a Windows service. 




‍Jenkins is now successfully installed on your machine. You can now proceed with your Test Suite executions.
