Quali Torque

The Torque Jenkins Plugin provides an easy way to consume Torque sandboxes through Jenkins for a variety of use cases. The plugin allows you to build jobs that create on-demand sandboxes in Torque based on pre-defined blueprints.

Note: The Torque Jenkins plugin does not support production environments.


  • Jenkins server 2.3 and above with internet access
  • Port connection between Jenkins and the Torque API Server


  1. Download the hpi package from the Releases tab

Creating pipelines

  1. Create a new pipeline.
  2. Click Advanced Project Options and create a Pipeline script. Feel free to use our pipeline script examples for reference. Note that the Integration Tests section (shown in the above image) is the main section of the ‘start sandbox’ pipeline as it defines the details of the sandbox to be launched, and then the .startSandbox() line launches it, any deployment errors are caught using the catch(Exception e) element, and the finally part is triggered when the sandbox is active.
  3. Click Save.

Pipeline support (Workflow)

How to use Torque plugin:


  • Use torque.blueprint to define a Blueprint object that can then be used to perform operations on a blueprint.
blueprint = torque.blueprint('blueprint_name', ['appname1': 'version', 'appname2': 'version'])
  • Use blueprint.startSandbox to starts a sandbox and returns a sandbox object which you could stop later.
sandbox = blueprint.startSandbox()
  • Use blueprint.doInsideSandbox to starts a sandbox for the duration of the body
   //code block


  • Use sandbox.end() to stop the sandbox
