Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

  • node['jenkins-server']['security']['chef-vault']['data_bag_item'] - ID of the data bag to use as administrator user




Include jenkins-server in your node's run_list:

  "run_list": [

The default recipe includes the following recipies:

include_recipe 'jenkins-server::packages'
include_recipe 'jenkins-server::master'
include_recipe 'jenkins-server::security'
include_recipe 'jenkins-server::settings'
include_recipe 'jenkins-server::plugins'

Adding plugins

You can add plugins to the default['jenkins-server']['plugins'] array.

Plugins can be configured with groovy scripts. Test them at your Jenkins instance: http://<host>:8080/script

With the doInspector method from you can figure out the properties and methods of your plugin. The Jenkins core API documentation can be found at

def doInspector(obj) {
  def inspector = new groovy.inspect.Inspector(obj)
  def inspectorReport = new StringBuilder()
  inspectorReport << "Object under inspection "
  inspectorReport << (inspector.isGroovy() ? "IS" : "is NOT") << " Groovy!\n"
  inspectorReport << "METHODS\n"
  def methods = inspector.methods
  methods.each {
    inspectorReport << "\t" << it.toString() << "\n"
  inspectorReport << "\nMETA METHODS\n"
  def metaMethods = inspector.metaMethods
  metaMethods.each {
    inspectorReport << "\t" << it.toString() << "\n"
  inspectorReport << "\nPROPERTY INFO\n"
  def properties = inspector.propertyInfo
  properties.each {
    inspectorReport << "\t" << it.toString() << "\n"
  println inspectorReport

Add a Jenkins plugin "myplugin" like below. You can specify a version. If you want to configure it, set configure to true and specify a cookbook and recipe. Use the jenkins_script resource to configure your plugin with a groovy script. Take a look at the plugin recipes in this cookbook for examples.

default['jenkins-server']['plugins']['myplugin'] = {
  'version' => '1.0',
  'configure' => true,
  'cookbook' => 'mycookbook',
  'recipe' => 'myrecipe_plugin_example'
