Jenkins Setup

Jenkins is used to build, deploy and setup the infrastructure for Sunbird. Almost everything in Sunbird is automated using Jenkins pipelines which integrates with ansible and other tools.

  • SSH to the Jenkins server and enter the following commands -

       git clone https://github.com/project-sunbird/sunbird-devops.git
       cd sunbird-devops && git checkout tags/release-4.3.0 -b release-4.3.0
       cd deploy/jenkins
       sudo bash jenkins-server-setup.sh
    
  • Open Jenkins UI in a browser by visiting JENKINS_IP:8080

  • Enter the initial password and follow the on-screen instructions. Choose Install suggested plugin and create an admin user

  • Go to http://JENKINS_IP:8080/pluginManager/available -> Search for ‘Configuration as Code Plugin’ and install the plugin without restart.

Don’t run the following until above steps finished

  • Run the below commands on Jenkins server -

      sudo bash jenkins-plugins-setup.sh
      cp envOrder.txt.sample envOrder.txt
      vi envOrder.txt
    
  • Update the environment list as per your requirement in ascending order. For example, if you want to have dev, staging and production environments, your envOrder.txt will look like -

      dev=0
      staging=1
      production=2
    
  • Run the below script on Jenkins server and provide input as required (case sensitive) -

      sudo bash jenkins-jobs-setup.sh
    
  • Restart jenkins

      sudo service jenkins restart
    
  • Configure Jenkins
    sudo su jenkins
    curl -SsL -o ~/jenkins.yaml https://raw.githubusercontent.com/project-sunbird/sunbird-devops/release-4.3.0/deploy/jenkins/jenkins.yaml
      
    # Replace all placeholders ${VALUE} with proper values
    # For example, 
    # username: "${GH_USERNAME}" to  username: "mygithubusername"
    vim ~/jenkins.yaml
    
  • Run the below commands on Jenkins server -

      mkdir -p /var/lib/jenkins/secrets
      cd /var/lib/jenkins/secrets
      touch deployer_ssh_key vault-pass k8s.yaml
      chmod 600 deployer_ssh_key vault-pass k8s.yaml
    
  • Copy the contents of your server’s private key into /var/lib/jenkins/secrets/deployer_ssh_key

  • Copy the kubernetes config file contents into /var/lib/jenkins/secrets/k8s.yaml

  • If you have encrypted your secrets.yml using ansible-vault, enter the password to decrypt into /var/lib/jenkins/secrets/vault-pass. If you have not encrypted, then enter a random value like 12345

  • Run sudo visudo on jenkins server and add the below line -
      jenkins ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL

  • Reboot the Jenkins VM (sudo reboot)
