Amazon SNS Build Notifier

Sends build notifications to an AWS SNS topic as post-build step with customizable subject and message payload.

  1. git clone
  2. cd snsnotify-plugin
  3. mvn hpi:run compile and start Jetty with the Plugin ready to be used

Create an installable artifact:

  1. mvn clean install
  2. (wait for mvn to download the internet)
  3. Manage Jenkins > Plugins > Advanced > Upload ./target/snsnotify.hpi
  4. Restart Jenkins ([$JENKINS_URL]/safeRestart)

Now, login to AWS and do the following:

  1. Create an SNS Topic, subscribe a target SQS queue (or create subscription via email etc.)
  2. Right-click on targeted SQS queue to confirm subscription

Finally, back to Jenkins...

  1. Manage Jenkins > Configure Jenkins to use AWS creds and newly created Topic ARN. You can also specify the default bevaiour in case you want to send out also an SNS notification when the build is started (off by default).
  2. As part of your job: add post-build step for SNS notification, optionally configure subject and message (you can make use of build and environment variables, which do get substituted), resp. override Topic ARN (if you do not want to stick with globally configured one).
