Generic Tool


This plugin provides a "Generic Tool" tool installation for use in Pipelines.

It's a lighter weight alternative to installing plugins like Ant, Groovy, etc. when all you need is the tool installation definition for use with the tool step.

Getting started

The tool configuration can be found in Manage Jenkins » Global Tool Configuration » Generic Tool.

The tool installations configured there can be used with the tool step in Pipelines.

You can also use Tool Environment Plugin to make these tools available to other job types. Extra Tool Installers Plugin provides additional tool installers that can be used for the Generic Tools you define with this plugin.
