System Administration

This chapter for system administrators of Jenkins servers and nodes. It will cover system maintenance topics including security, monitoring, and backup/restore.

Users not involved with system-level tasks will find this chapter of limited use. Individual sections may assume knowledge of information from previous sections, but such assumptions will be explicitly called out and cross-referenced.

If you are not yet familiar with basic Jenkins terminology and features, start with Getting Started with Jenkins.

If you are already familiar with Jenkins basics and would like to delve deeper into how to use specific features, see Using Jenkins.

If you are a Jenkins administrator and want to know more about managing Jenkins nodes and instances, see Managing Jenkins.
