Lab 11 - Build Image

Add Build Image Stage

Add the Build Image Stage into your pipeline.

The “sh” are shell commands in your pipeline that are executed on the Jenkins Slave. Maven built the openshift-tasks.war in it the target directory and it will be copied into the created oc-builds directory.

The startBuild stage is kicked off from Openshift and pointing to the local directory “oc-build” on the Jenkins slave.

In Builds > Pipelines > tasks-pipeline > Actions > Edit

Append the text below to the bottom of the Jenkins Pipeline Configuration. Please make sure to append to the beginning of the next line.

    stage('Build Image') {
      steps {
        sh "rm -rf oc-build && mkdir -p oc-build/deployments"
        sh "cp target/openshift-tasks.war oc-build/deployments/ROOT.war"

        script {
          openshift.withCluster() {
            openshift.withProject(env.DEV_PROJECT) {
              openshift.selector("bc", "tasks").startBuild("--from-dir=oc-build", "--wait=true")
