First aid for Jenkins issues

Last edited on

To help on Jenkins or Hudson issues there are log and result files which contain vital information required to get an overview about the Jenkins and job configuration.

Jenkins / Hudson stores its configuration and log files inside the Jenkins / Hudson home directory which is located at %USERPROFILE%\.jenkins or %USERPROFILE%\.hudson on Windows and at $HOME/.jenkins or $HOME/.hudson on Unix systems by default.

If these directories don't exist please check if the JENKINS_HOME / HUDSON_HOME environment variable has been set.

To help investigating Jenkins / Hudson issues please provide the following files and directories of the Jenkins / Hudson home directory:

File / directoryInfo
jobs/<your_job>/config.xmlSquish build step job configuration.
jobs/<your_job>/builds/<your_latest_build>/logConsole log of the build.
jobs/<your_job>/builds/<your_latest_build>/squishResultsLogs of squishrunner, squishserver and result XML file. And latest web report. It is best to send the contents of this directory to us as a zipped file.
