View AWS CodeBuild Plugin on the plugin site for more information.

AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed build service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces software packages that are ready to deploy. With CodeBuild, you don’t need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers. CodeBuild scales continuously and processes multiple builds concurrently, so your builds are not left waiting in a queue. You can get started quickly by using prepackaged build environments, or you can create custom build environments that use your own build tools. With CodeBuild, you are charged by the minute for the compute resources you use.

The AWS CodeBuild plugin for Jenkins provides a build step for your Jenkins project.

Setup Jenkins

We have written a blog post for setting up Jenkins with AWS CodeBuild plugin pre-installed. Learn more: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/devops/simplify-your-jenkins-builds-with-aws-codebuild/.

Plugin Installation (Optional)


If you already have a Jenkins setup and would like to only install the AWS CodeBuild plugin, then the recommended approach would be to search for "AWS CodeBuild Plugin for Jenkins" in the Plugin Manager on your Jenkins instance.


Plugin Usage

Using the AWS CodeBuild plugin with the Jenkins Pipeline plugin

Your CodeBuild project can be configured in a Jenkins Pipeline. as shown below. You can use the snippet generator (click "Pipeline Syntax" on your pipeline project page) to generate the pipeline script that adds CodeBuild as a step in your pipeline. It should generate something like:

awsCodeBuild projectName: 'project', credentialsType: 'keys', region: 'us-west-2', sourceControlType: 'jenkins'

Using AWS CodeBuild with Jenkins

  1. Create Project on the AWS CodeBuild console.
    • Switch to the region you would prefer to run the build in.
    • You can optionally set the Amazon VPC configuration to allow CodeBuild build container to access resources within your VPC.
    • Make sure to write down the project's name.
    • (Optional) If your source repository is not natively supported by CodeBuild, you can set the input source type for your project as S3 for the CodeBuild project.
  2. Create AWS IAM user to be used by the Jenkins plugin.
    • Create a policy similar to the one following this section.
    • Go to the IAM console, and create a new user.
      • Access type should be: Programmatic Access.
      • Attach policy to user that you created previously.
  3. Create a freestyle project in Jenkins.
    • On the Configure page, choose Add build step > Run build on AWS AWS CodeBuild.
    • Configure your build step.
      • Enter RegionCredentials from the user created previously, and ProjectName.
      • Select Use Project source.
      • Save the configuration and run a build from Jenkins.
  • For the Source Code Management make sure to select how you would like to retrieve your source. You may need to install the GitHub Plugin (or the relevant source repository provider's Jenkins plugin) to your Jenkins server.
  • On the Configure page, choose Add build step > Run build on AWS CodeBuild.
  • Configure the build step.
    • Enter RegionCredentials from the user created previously, and Project name.
    • Select Use Jenkins source.
    • Save the configuration and run a build from Jenkins.
