Jenkins 2 workspace location

Like many developers, I get a broken build on regular basis. When setting up a new project this happens a lot because of missing infrastructure dependencies or not having access to the companies private docker hub …

Anyway on the old Jenkins (1), I used to go into the workspace folder to have a look at the build itself. In Jenkins 2 this seemed to have disappeared  (when using the pipeline) … or did it … ?

It’s there, but you got to look very careful. To get there follow these simple steps:

  • Go to the failing build (the #…)
  • Click on “Pipeline Steps” in the sidebar
  • Click on “Allocate node : …”
  • On the right side the “Workspace” folder icon that we all love appears
  • Click it

Et voila we are all set
