After JFrog Pipelines is installed, you must connect it to your external facilities to make them available for your pipelines to load and run.
These configuration facilities are only available to administrator users. For all other users, these views show what connections are available to pipelines, but they cannot be changed.
These configuration facilities are available to administrator users from the Administration tab:
- Pipelines Integrations provide the mechanisms that enable an external service to inter-operate with Pipelines, as well as securely store the credentials for access to that service. They are necessary for Pipelines to connect to a pipeline source, and for pipelines to access external services through resources and steps. Integrations must be added and managed by an administrator user.
- A Pipeline Source represents a source control repository (such as GitHub or BitBucket) where Pipelines definition files can be found. A pipeline source connects to the repository through an integration. Once a pipeline source is added, Pipelines will automatically load all config files from the repository that matches the specified filename filter.
- provide a convenient way to logically group build nodes in a JFrog Pipelines environment. This enables you to run steps simultaneously on different nodes.
