Jenkins Installation and GitHub OAuth Integration using Ansible

In this tutorial, we’ll use Ansible to automate the installation of Jenkins CI on a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and integrate it with the GitHub OAuth. Ansible will also assign the matrix based permission on the Jenkins like which github user or group(s) have what rights on the Jenkins. Beside that, it will also install the Apache which serves as frontend for all the Jenkins requests.

In short, in this tutorial we’ll do the following tasks using Ansible:

  • Install the JAVA 7
  • Install the mentioned version of Jenkins(in this case it will be 1.658)
  • Install the desired plugins
  • Install the Apache and configure it as frontend for Jenkins
  • Install the SSL certificate for Apache Virtual Host that act as frontend for Jenkins
  • Integrate the Jenkins with GitHub using OAuth for Authenication
  • Configure the matrix based security using the github username or group
