jenkins-job-builder setup on mac

jenkins-job-builder setup on mac

During my work day I use jenkins-jobs a lot since we have a lot of jenkins jobs. Running this tool on Centos, works like a charm. Tried to setup on my MAC and I failed to run it. Got the following errors:

knesenko@knesenko-mbp:~$ jenkins-jobs 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/jenkins-jobs", line 6, in 
    from jenkins_jobs.cmd import main
  File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/jenkins_jobs/", line 27, in 
    from jenkins_jobs.builder import Builder
  File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/jenkins_jobs/", line 25, in 
    import jenkins
  File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/jenkins/", line 54, in 
    from six.moves.http_client import BadStatusLine
ImportError: No module named http_client

The issue is MAC trying to use the old six version:

knesenko@knesenko-mbp:~$ ipython
Python 2.7.10 (default, Jul 14 2015, 19:46:27)

In [1]: import six

In [2]: six.__version__
Out[2]: '1.4.1'

The solution is to change the PYTHONPATH to use modules you installed from pip. Put the following line to ~/.bash_profile:

export PYTHONPATH="/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages"
knesenko@knesenko-mbp:~$ source .bash_profile 
knesenko@knesenko-mbp:~$ jenkins-jobs 
usage: jenkins-jobs [-h] [--conf CONF] [-l LOG_LEVEL] [--ignore-cache]
                    [--flush-cache] [--version] [--allow-empty-variables]
                    {test,delete-all,update,delete} ...

Jenkins Groovy Script Code Completion

jenkins groovy script code completion

Do you always remember all methods of all classes in Jenkins and its plugins ? I don’t and it was had for me to google everything.

In my example I am using IntelliJ. Create a new MVN project jenkinsgroovy and add at least jenkins-core and the plugins you need as dependency in the pom.xml.

Example of pom.xml:

<project xmlns="" xmlns:xsi=""


To add a groovy sdk to the project, go to: File -> Project Structure -> SDKs
