System Administration

This site is the new docs site currently being tested. For the actual docs in use please go to

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