Query for jenkins history for parametrised jobs.


Set evars to authenticate with jenkins:

export JENKINS_URL=https://jenkins.domain.invalid
export JENKINS_API_USER=user.name

The user only requires read access to the jobs you want to query.


Ask jenq for history, latest, or console for a named job, optionally specifying filters:

jenq history myjobname -f APP:myapp -f VERSION=0.1.2
jenq console myjobname -f APP:myapp
jenq latest myjobname

Filters can work in all subcommands, and match jenkins StringParameters. Here myjobname is assumed to have two string parameters: APP, and VERSION.

The history example above gets history where both values of the parameters match.

The console example above gets the latest console output where the APP parameter matches.

The latest example above gets the latest job number from jenkins without matching anything.

jenq history

Creates a table of last matching jobs (gaps in numbers caused by filters):

189    2018-11-27 20:09:44  Some(Success)
182    2018-11-26 17:22:24  Some(Success)
160    2018-11-23 15:33:33  Some(Success)
130    2018-11-22 12:08:15  Some(Success)

Note: the build numbers are underlined, clickable links in your terminal if your terminal emulator supports it.

jenq latest

Produces a link and information about last build matching your parameters:

myjobnames#189 (478354) at 2018-11-27 20:09:44 UTC on https://jenkins.domain.invalid/job/myjobname/189/

jenq console

Get the raw console output of the latest matching job, or numbered job:

jenq console myjobname
jenq console myjobname 32

Produces the raw console output, along with the expected jenkins gunk (here truncated):

Started by upstream project "myjobname" build number 32
originally caused by:
 Started by remote host
[EnvInject] - Loading node environment variables.
shipcat::kube: Waiting 65s for deployment webapp to rollout (not ready yet)
shipcat::helm::direct: successfully rolled out webapp
Finished: SUCCESS


Latest stable with rust installed:

cargo install jenq # latest stable

Latest stable without rust installed (linux only):

curl -sSL https://github.com/clux/jenq/releases/download/${JENQ_VERSION}/jenq.x86_64-unknown-linux-musl.tar.gz | tar xz -C /usr/local

Substitute JENQ_VERSION variable for the version you want.


Add this to your ~/.bash_completion file:

if hash jenq 2> /dev/null; then
    source <(jenq completions bash)


Clone and build:

git clone git@github.com:clux/jenq.git && cd jenq
cargo build
ln -sf $PWD/target/debug/jenq /usr/local/bin/jenq
