I have a RHEL 7 server running Jenkins which has not connectivity to the internet what so ever. Not through a proxy, nothing.
Now I have to install a bunch of plugins with all of their dependencies. It would take forever to manually download the .hpi files and install them so I tried to get creative and run Jenkins on my PC, install all the needed plugins and then copy that plugin folder to $JENKINS_HOME/plugins on my RHEL server.
Although $JENKINS_HOME/plugins on my RHEL server is full off plugins:
bash-4.2$ pwd /var/lib/jenkins/plugins bash-4.2$ ls -alt **total 28** drwxrwxrwx. 5 jenkins jenkins 64 Jun 20 09:15 ws-cleanup etc etc..
The Jenkins GUI isn’t listing any under Installed plugins when browsing to /pluginManager/installed. Also, I cant find any .hpi or .jpi in the plugins. What am I doing wrong?
