is it possible to use full path to ant build file in a Jenkins job?
I'm trying to create a Jenkins job that:
- execute an ant file on the local file system, ant will execute jmeter tests.
- Performance plugin to create graphs from the jmeter reports.
but I can't find a way to make Jenkins find the build file, my job has only an ant build step, no SCM checkout:
the ant configuration contains only the full path to my ant file:
but I keep getting this from Jenkins
Started by user anonymous FATAL: Unable to find build script at /home/shalom/dev/dev-otho/automation/stress/build.xml Finished: FAILURE
same thing happens when i try to setup the full path to jmeter reports in Performance Plugin:
Performance: Recording JMeter reports '/home/shalom/dev/dev-otho/automation/stress/results/*.jtl' Performance: no JMeter files matching '/home/shalom/dev/dev-otho/automation/stress/results/*.jtl' have been found. Has the report generated?. Setting Build to FAILURE Finished: FAILURE
if I add SCM checkout and execute the ant file from Jenkins workspace then it works. but I don't need to checkout, just to use the working copy on the local machine.
It seems like Jenkins can't use full paths.
Appreciate any help.
