This plugin allows Gitee to trigger builds in Jenkins when code is committed or pull requests are opened/updated. It can also send build status back to Gitee.

Current Supported Features

  • When pushing code to the Gitee, the configured Webhook triggers the Jenkins task build。
  • Comments on a submission record trigger a Jenkins task build for the corresponding version of the submission record
  • When submitting a Pull Request to a Gitee project, Jenkins task builds are triggered by the configured Webhook, which supports PR actions: New, Update, Accept, Close, Review Pass, Test Pass.
  • Support [ci-skip] instruction filtering or [ci-build] instruction to trigger build.
  • Filter Commit versions that have already been built. If the branch is Push, the same branch Push is filtered,and if the branch is PR, the same PR is filtered.
  • Filters triggers by branch name。
  • Regular expressions filter the branches that can be triggered。
  • Set the Webhook authentication password。
  • Post-build operations can configure PR triggered build results to comment in the corresponding PR of Gitee.
  • Post-build operation configurable PR triggered by the successful build, the corresponding PR can be automatically merged.
  • For all PR-related events, if the PR code conflicts cannot be automatically merged, the build will not be triggered; and if the function of commenting to PR is configured, the comment to PR will prompt conflict.
  • PR comments can be triggered via WebHook (can be used for PR to trigger a build failure to facilitate re-triggering the build from the code cloud platform comments).
  • Support for configuring PR does not require filtering to trigger a build when testing is required. (Can be used to build a deployment test environment without testing).
  • Support the same PR to trigger the construction, cancel the incomplete construction in progress, and proceed to the current construction (the same PR construction is not queued, and multiple different PR constructions still need to be queued).

Features in plan

  1. PR review and test pass trigger build (users can trigger deployment, and the feature of automatically merged PR can be used to improve the workflow.)
  2. Check the trigger mode to automatically add WebHook to Gitee.

Global plugin installation

  1. Online installation
    • Go to Manage Jenkins -> Manage Plugins -> Available
    • Right Filter enter: Gitee
    • Check Gitee in the optional list below (if Gitee does not exist in the list, click Check now to update the plug-in list)
    • Click Download now and install after restart


  1. Manual installation
    • From release Copy the URL of the latest release
    • Go to Manage Jenkins -> Manage Plugins -> Advanced
    • In Upload Plugin File, paste the URL that was copied in the earlier step
    • Check in the subsequent pages Restart Jenkins when installation is complete and no jobs are running

Global plugin configuration

  1. Go on Jenkins -> Manage Jenkins -> Configure System -> Gitee Configuration -> Gitee connections

  2. Enter Gitee or the name you want in Connection name

  3. Enter the full URL address of Gitee in Gitee host URL'':`` (Customers of Gitee privatization enter the deployed domain name)

  4. If you haven't configured the Code Cloud APIV5 private token in Credentials'', click Add'' -> Jenkins

    1. Domain select Global credentials
    2. Kind select Gitee API Token
    3. Scope choose the range you need
    4. Gitee API Token Enter your code cloud private token to obtain the address:
    5. Enter the ID and description you want in ID, Description.
  5. Credentials Select the configured Gitee APIV5 Token

  6. Click Advanced, you can configure whether to ignore SSL errors (depending on whether your Jenkins environment supports it), and set the link test timeout period (depending on your network environment)

  7. Click Test Connection to test whether the link is successful, if it fails, please check the above 3, 5, 6 steps.

After the configuration is successful, as shown in the figure : 码云链接配置

New build task

Go to Jenkins -> New Item, enter 'Gitee Test' as name, select Freestyle project and save to create a build project.

Task global configuration

In the task global configuration, you need to select the code cloud link in the previous step. Go to Configure -> General of a task (such as 'Gitee Test'), and select the code cloud link configured earlier in Gitee connection, as shown in the figure: : 任务全局配置

Source code management configuration

Go to the Configure -> Source Code Management tab of a task (such as 'Gitee Test')

  1. Click Git
  2. Enter your warehouse address, for example git@your.gitee.server:gitee_group/gitee_project.git
    1. Click the Advanced button, enter in the Name field originRefspec Field input +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/* +refs/pull/*/MERGE:refs/pull/*/MERGE ,Note that the new version of Jenkins no longer accepts multiple refs descriptions that contain * wildcards at the same time. If only the push trigger can write the first half, if only PR triggers, only the second half can be written. See the figure below for details :输入图片说明
  3. Credentials, please enter the username and password credentials corresponding to the https address of the git warehouse, or the ssh key credentials corresponding to ssh. Note that the Gitee API Token credentials cannot be used for source code management credentials, but only used for the API call credentials of the gitee plugin.
  4. Branch Specifier options:
    1. For single warehouse workflow input : origin/${giteeSourceBranch}
    2. For PR workflow input : pull/${giteePullRequestIid}/MERGE
  5. Additional Behaviours options:
    1. For a single warehouse workflow, if you want to merge the default branch (released branch) before the pushed branch is built, you can do the following:
      1. Click the Add drop-down box
      2. Select Merge before build
      3. Set Name of repository to origin
      4. Set Branch to merge to to ${ReleaseBranch} The default branch (release branch) you want to merge
    2. For the PR workflow, the code cloud server has pre-merged the original branch and target branch of the PR. You can build it directly. If the target branch is not the default branch (release branch), you can also merge before the appeal build.。

The configuration is shown in the figure:


Trigger configuration

Go to the trigger build of task configuration: Configure -> Build Triggers tab

  1. Enabled Gitee triggers Check the build trigger rules you need, such as Push Event, Opened Merge Request Events, the checked events will receive WebHook and trigger the build. Currently supported trigger events are :
    • Push Events
    • Commit Comment Events
    • Opened Merge Request Events
    • Updated Merge Request Events
    • Accepted Merge Request Events
    • Closed Merge Request Events
    • Approved Pull Requests
    • Tested Pull Requests
  2. Build Instruction Filter :
    • None
    • [ci-skip] skip build :When commit message or PR description contains [ci-skip], skip the build trigger.
    • [ci-build] trigger build :When commit message or PR description contains [ci-build], the build will be triggered.
  3. Ignore last commit has build This option can skip the Commit version that has been built.
  4. Cancel incomplete build on same Pull Requests This option will determine whether there is an unfinished build with the same PR when the PR triggers the build. If there is, the unfinished build will be canceled and the current build will be carried out.
  5. Ignore Pull Request conflicts This option will select whether to build according to the PR conflict when the PR triggers the build.
  6. Allowed branches You can configure the branches that are allowed to be built, and currently support branch names and regular expressions for filtering.
  7. Secret Token for Gitee WebHook This option can configure the password of WebHook, which needs to be consistent with the password configured by Code Cloud WebHook to trigger the construction.
  8. Note: If the PR status is not automatically merged, the build will not be triggered 。 触发器配置

Post-build step configuration

Go to the post-build configuration of task configuration: Configure -> Post-build Actions tab

Build results back to Gitee

  1. Click the drop-down box of Add post-build action to select: Add note with build status on Gitee pull requests
  2. It can be configured in Advanced:
    • Add message only for failed builds :Re-evaluate to Code Cloud only for failed builds
    • Customize the content of the feedback for each state (the content can refer to the environment variables of Jenkins, or custom environment variables)
  3. If you turn on this function, you can also review the non-automatically merged state to Gitee.

Build successfully and automatically merge PR

Click the drop-down box of Add post-build action to select: Accept Gitee pull request on success


New Gitee project WebHook
