Overview

The Compuware Source Code Download for Endevor, PDS, and ISPW plugin allows users to download Endevor, PDS, and ISPW members from the mainframe to the PC. Source can then be accessed on the PC, for example, for SonarQube analysis and reporting.  

Prerequisites

The following are required to use this plugin:

  • Jenkins
  • Jenkins Credentials plugin
  • Topaz Workbench CLI. Refer to the Topaz Workbench Install Guide for instructions.
  • Topaz Program Analysis license
  • Host Communications Interface

Installing in a Jenkins Instance

  1. Install the Compuware Source Code Download for Endevor, PDS, and ISPW plugin according to the Jenkins instructions for installing plugins.  Dependent plugins will automatically be installed.
  2. Install the Topaz Workbench CLI on the Jenkins instances that will execute the plugin.  The Topaz Workbench CLI is available on the Topaz Workbench installation package.  If you do not have the installation package, please visit go.compuware.com.  For Topaz Workbench CLI installation instructions, please refer to the Topaz Workbench Install Guide.

Configuring Host Connections

  1. In the Jenkins system Jenkins/Manage Jenkins/Configure System screen, go to the Compuware Configurations section, do one of the following:

    • In the Windows Topaz Workbench CLI home field, point to the Windows installation location of the CLI. If necessary, change the default values given to match the correct installation location.

    • In the Linux Topaz Workbench CLI home field, point to the Linux installation location of the CLI. If necessary, change the default values given to match the correct installation location.

    Note: The Topaz Workbench CLI must be installed on the machine that is configured to run the job.

  2. If no host connection appears in the Host Connections section, click Add Host Connection and add a host connection by entering the following information:

    • In the Description field, enter a description of the connection.

    • In the Host:port field, enter the z/OS host to connect to.

    • From the Code page list, select the desired code page to be used for this connection. The code page is used to translate data sent to and from the host. The default is 1047.

    • In the Read/write timeout (minutes) field, enter the number of minutes for the plugin to wait for a response from the host before timing out.

    Note: Click Delete Host Connection to delete an existing connection.

Downloading Endevor or PDS members

  1. On the Configuration page of the job or project, select one of the following from the Source Code Management section:

    • Endevor

    • PDS

  2. From the Host connection list, select the host connection to be used to connect to the z/OS host. Alternatively, to add a connection, click Manage connections. The Host connections section of the Jenkins configuration page appears so a connection can be added.

  3. In the Login credentials field, select the stored credentials to use for logging onto the z/OS host. Alternatively, click Add to add credentials using the Credentials plugin. Refer to the Jenkins documentation for the Credentials plugin.

  4. In the Filter pattern field, enter the datasets for which to download members, delimiting datasets with white space or commas.

    Note: Wildcards can be used for the last character only.
    Note: For Endevor, if the stage is wildcarded, only the most recent revision of each source member will be downloaded.
    Note: Migrated PDSs are recalled before being downloaded.
  5. In the File extension to assign field, enter the extension to be added to the downloaded files.
  6. Optionally, in the Source download location field, enter the absolute or relative path to the project workspace location to which to download the source. If this field is left blank, source is downloaded to a folder based on the filter name relative to the default location (the project workspace). For each PDS, a directory is created with the name of the PDS relative to the filter folder that contains the members that were downloaded.

  7. Click Save. When the project or job runs, files are downloaded to the location in the Source download location field or, if that field was left blank, to the default location (the project workspace location).

  8. Optionally, to perform SonarQube analysis, install the SonarQube plugin and refer to the documentation for the SonarQube plugin at https://jenkins-ci.org/.

Downloading ISPW members

  1. On the Configuration page of the job or project, select ISPW from the Source Code Management section.

  2. From the Host connection list, select the host connection to be used to connect to the z/OS host. Alternatively, to add a connection, click Manage connections. The Host connections section of the Jenkins configuration page appears so a connection can be added.

  3. In the Runtime configuration field, enter the host runtime configuration.  To use the default configuration, leave the field blank.

  4. In the Login credentials field, select the stored credentials to use for logging onto the z/OS host. Alternatively, click Add to add credentials using the Credentials plugin. Refer to the Jenkins documentation for the Credentials plugin.

  5. Use the Filter section to identify the ISPW members to be downloaded:

    1. In the Stream field, enter the two- to eight-character code that defines the application structure with which the application is associated.

    2. In the Application field, enter the container's primary application code. Containers may include components from multiple applications.

    3. In the Level field, enter the life cycle level.

    4. From the Level option list, do one of the following:

      • Select Selected level only to display only components at the selected life cycle level in the view.

      • Select First found in level and above to display the first version found of each component at the selected level and above. In other words, if there are multiple versions in the life cycle, display one version of the component that is the first one found at the selected level and any levels in the path above it.

    5. Optionally, use the Component types and/or Application root folder names fields to identify components and application root folders to download:

      • To download a folder that matches the name specified (and all of its contents) and download all components outside of a folder that match the specified type, enter values in both the Component types and Application root folder names fields. Enter in the Component types field the component type (such as COB, COPY, or JOB) on which to filter. Enter in the Application root folder names field the name of the folder on which to filter. For example, entering COB in the Component types field and FolderX in the Application root folder names field will download FolderX and all of its contents, as well as all of the COB files that exist outside of folders.

      • To download all components of a specified type regardless of whether they are within folders, use only the Component types field by entering the component type (such as COB, COPY, or JOB) on which to filter.

      • To download a folder that matches the name specified (and all of its contents), as well as all components that are not within a folder, use only the Application root folder names field by entering the name of the folder on which to filter.

      • To download all components and folders in the application and level selected, leave both fields empty.

      Note: To download multiple folders or types, comma-separate the values.

  6. Click Save. When the project or job runs, by default the following occurs:

    • Mainframe source is downloaded to the project's or job's workspace into an <ISPW Application name>/MF_Source folder.

    • Folder components are downloaded into an <ISPW Application name> folder.

  7. Optionally, to perform SonarQube analysis, install the SonarQube plugin and refer to the documentation for the SonarQube plugin at https://jenkins-ci.org/.

Using Pipeline Syntax to Generate Pipeline Script

  1. Do one of the following:

    • When working with an existing Pipeline job, click the Pipeline Syntax link in the left panel. The Snippet Generator appears.

    • When configuring a Pipeline job, click the Pipeline Syntax link at the bottom of the Pipeline configuration section. The Snippet Generator appears.

  2. From the Sample Step list, select checkout: General SCM.

  3. From the SCM list, select EndevorISPW, or PDS as the version control system from which to get the code.

  4. Complete the remaining fields for the selected SCM.

  5. Click Generate Pipeline Script. The Groovy script to invoke the Compuware Source Code Download for Endevor, PDS, and ISPW plugin appears. The script can be added to the Pipeline section when configuring a Pipeline job. A sample script is shown below:

    checkout([$class: 'PdsConfiguration',
        connectionId: 'f5264789-8b54-6522-al25-ag54gh85re42',
        credentialsId: 'f4393474-9b86-4155-ae2c-ac11ab71ae47',
        fileExtension: 'cbl',
        filterPattern: 'abc.def'])

    Note: The Include in polling? and Include in changelog? check boxes have no effect in the Compuware Source Code Download for Endevor, PDS, and ISPW plugin.

Change Log

Version 2.0.0

  • The plugin now integrates with the Compuware Common Configuration plugin which allows the Host Connection configurations and Topaz Workbench CLI to be defined centrally for other Compuware Jenkins plugins instead of needing to be specified in each Jenkins project's configuration.  Host Connection configuration is now defined in the Jenkins/Manage Jenkins/Configure System screen. 
  • Jenkins console logs produced by the plugin have been streamlined to improve readability.
  • ISPW filters can now be specified to only download specified folders in the ISPW repository.
  • ISPW mainframe source files will now be downloaded to the following directory structure under the Jenkins Workspace <Jenkins Project>/<ISPW Application Name>/MF_Source directory instead of to the root of the <ISPW Application Name> directory.
  • PDS and Endevor configurations now allow a source download folder to be specified in the configuration.
  • Version checking has been introduced between the plugin and the Topaz Workbench CLI.

Upgrade considerations

  • The 18.2.3 version of the Topaz Workbench CLI is required.  The Topaz Workbench CLI is included in the Topaz Workbench installation media provided by Compuware.
  • Existing Free Style Jenkins projects will automatically migrate data into the new versions plugin, but the user should validate the project settings and save the updates before executing the Project.  
  • Existing Pipeline Jenkins projects will need to be updated to the new plugins syntax.  Please see the section below regarding Pipeline Syntax.  

Version 1.8

  • ISPW is now a separate option from PDS in the SCM section of the configuration.  By using ISPW, users are able to configure the source download using the same selection and filtering options as the ISPW Repository explorer in Topaz Workbench.  

Version 1.7 

  • Maintenance release

Version 1.6

  • Maintenance release

Version 1.5
