For installation instructions please refer to Installing Pipelines

Pipelines 1.12.1

Released: February 09, 2021

Requires Artifactory 7.11 or newer.

Pipelines 1.12.1 is Available as a Cloud Version

The JFrog Pipelines 1.12.1 release is available as a Cloud version. 1.12.2 release is now available for on-prem.


Pipeline of Pipelines View - Runs-level

Pipelines now enables you to view the end-to-end multi-pipeline map for a specific run, which shows the complete path for that run. For more information, see Viewing Pipelines.

Consolidation of Administrator Tasks

Based on customer feedback, several administration tasks, such as adding/editing Integrations, Pipeline Sources and Node Pools, have been consolidated under the Pipelines section in the Administration tab. In addition, Pipelines and Admin integrations can now be added from the same page. For more information, see Configuring Pipelines.

Timestamps on Console Logs

Timestamps are now displayed for console logs and sub-logs, node initialization logs, and sync logs. This eliminates the need for downloading logs to view timestamps.

Set Retention Policies

Pipelines now includes the ability to specify retention policies for pipeline-related artifacts, such as console logs, state, test reports, and others. Retention policy can be set at system level or pipeline level. For more information, see Setting Retention Policy.

PagerDuty Integration

Pipelines now includes PagerDuty Events integration, which can be used to connect JFrog Pipelines platform to PagerDuty for notifying events. For more information, see PagerDuty Events Integration.

Resolved Issues

  • Fixed an issue, where the write_out utility function was failing silently in a small set of scenarios.
  • Fixed an issue, where the Hide key button was not working as expected.
  • Fixed an issue, where the scroll position on Nodes table was reset every few seconds.

Pipelines 1.12.2

Released: February 18, 2021

Resolved Issues

  • Fixed an issue in k8 installs, where removal of a Rabbit-mq pvc could cause Pipelines to go into a crash-loop.

Pipelines 1.11.0

Released: January 21, 2021

Requires Artifactory 7.11 or newer.

Pipelines 1.11.0 is Available as a Cloud Version

The JFrog Pipelines 1.11.0 release is available as a Cloud version and will be available for on-premise shortly.

As of this release, build nodes no longer need to connect to RabbitMQ. As a result of this, after upgrading to Pipelines 1.11.0:

  • Steps that were running before and during upgrade might time out. If this happens, run the steps again.
  • Re-initialize all static nodes for the builds to run.

We recommend updating the service and build image registry during upgrade.


Pipeline of Pipelines view - Pipelines-level

Pipelines now includes a graph view for individual pipelines, which displays dependencies across pipelines and makes it easy to understand the end-to-end workflow. For more information, see Viewing Pipelines.

Auto-fetch Repository and Branch for Pipeline Sources

When adding a pipeline source, based on the information you have provided for the selected integration, the full name of the repository and the branch is automatically fetched. For more information, see Adding a Pipeline Source.

Enhanced MvnBuild native step

The MvnBuild native step has been enhanced based on customer feedback. The new step does not require the Artifactory plugin, and step configuration has been updated to add options for resolving dependencies and to work with default configuration.

Native steps updates

All native steps have been updated to display executed commands in console logs. Default configuration values have been added where possible.

Test Integration

Users have the ability to validate several integrations before creating or editing them. These include Artifactory, Distribution, Github, Github Enterprise, Bitbucket, Bitbucket Server,  and Gitlab.

Resolved Issues

  1. Fixed an issue, where the Control Plane container was running with root access.
  2. Fixed an issue, where targetRepo was not displayed in the context menu for a BuildInfo resource.
  3. Fixed an issue, where the error message while adding an integration with a duplicate name was misleading.
  4. Improved several error messages shown while adding pipeline sources.
  5. Fixed an issue, where a token for a Jenkins integration could not be erased and regenerated.

Pipelines 1.10.0

Released: December 23, 2020

Requires Artifactory 7.11 or newer.

Pipelines 1.10.0 is Available as a Cloud Version

The JFrog Pipelines 1.10.0 release is available as a Cloud version and will be available for on-premise shortly.


Pipeline of Pipelines view

Pipelines now includes a graph view, also called Pipeline of Pipelines view, which displays a combined graph view of interconnected dependent pipelines. This makes it easy to view dependencies across pipelines and understand the end-to-end workflow.  The Pipeline of Pipelines view is available as a toggle on the My Pipelines page. For more information, see Viewing Pipelines.

Easier addition of Artifactory and Distribution integrations

Username and URL are automatically added when you select Artifactory or Distribution integration. In addition, these integrations provide the option to automatically fetch the existing API key or create a new one. For more information, see Artifactory Integration and Distribution Integration.

Ubuntu 20.04, CentOS 8 and RHEL 8 Platform Support

Pipelines can now be installed on Ubuntu 20.04, CentOS 8 and RHEL 8. Static node pools can be added for all the newly supported platforms, while dynamic node pools can be added for Ubuntu 20.04 and CentOS 8.

Fetch branches for multibranch pipeline sources

Users can now fetch and sync specific branches for a multibranch pipeline source. This helps users in situations where a pipeline is not automatically created for a branch because the branch creation webhook was missed for some reason. For more information, see Fetching Branches.

Clickable rows on My Pipelines page

On the My Pipelines page, clicking anywhere on the row for single branch pipeline now takes you directly to the pipeline. Clicking the parent row for a multibranch pipeline now reveals all branches associated with the pipeline. In addition, clicking one of the branches takes you to the branch view for that pipeline.

Retry mechanism added for Native steps 

All native steps have been enhanced by adding retries for commands that could fail due to a network glitch or other external factors.

Changed default branch name for Github/Github Enterprise 

The default branch name has been changed to main while adding a pipeline source with a Github/Github Enterprise integration.

Resolved Issues

  1. Improved error handling around addition of pipeline source.
  2. Fixed an issue, where sortBy and excludePatterns configuration was not working for FileSpec resources.
  3. Fixed an issue, where the pipelines --version command did not work if the install command was not executed earlier.
  4. Improved logging to show when no_proxy env is set.

Pipelines 1.9.0

Pipelines 1.9.3

Released: November 19, 2020

Requires Artifactory 7.11 or newer.

Pipelines 1.9.3 is Available as a Cloud Version

The JFrog Pipelines 1.9.3 release is available as a Cloud version and will be available for on-premise shortly.


Pipelines Templates

Pipelines templates now enable users to define templates for pipeline definitions and use these templates while creating pipelines. An example template for building and pushing docker images to Artifactory is included with this version.

Matrix Multinode

A Matrix step can now be configured such that each steplet runs on its own build node in the same node pool.

Support for Insecure Registries for Dynamic Nodes

At the node pool level, users can specify a comma-separated list of allowed insecure docker registries.

Support for External Vault

Pipelines installer can now be configured to use an external Vault.

Access to Resources between different types of branches

Resources between different types of branches are now accessible to each other:

  • Resources in single branch pipelines are accessible in multibranch pipelines.
  • Resources in multibranch pipelines are accessible in single branch pipelines.
  • Resources in multibranch pipelines are accessible across branches.
Show when a Node was last initialized

The Node Pool page now includes a column to show when a node was last initialized.

Set custom values for build name and build number when used in Native steps

Earlier versions of Pipelines did not allow customization of buildName and buildNumber for a BuildInfo resource, when used as an outputResource in Native steps like NpmPublish, DockerPush, etc. With this release, you can set the JFROG_CLI_BUILD_NAME and JFROG_CLI_BUILD_NUMBER environment variables in the NpmBuild, DockerBuild, or similar build steps, which will be used to set the buildName and buildNumber. The resource definition for BuildInfo has been updated to make buildName and buildNumber optional.

Available Parallel Builds and other enhancements

The Node Pools page has been enhanced to show the following:

  • Total number of concurrent builds available (based on license).
  • Total number of concurrent builds that are currently executing across all node pools.

Additionally, the following information is available at a node pool level:

  • Max limit, which is the maximum number of nodes that can be provisioned in the node pool.
  • Nodes provisioned, which is the number of nodes currently provisioned in the pool. Note that some of these nodes might be idle.
  • Nodes in use, which is the number of nodes currently processing a step.
Signing key passphrase support for signing release bundles

An optional new field called Signing key passphrase has been added to the Distribution integration, which allows the user to securely set the signing key passphrase for a release bundle.

Pipelines extensions improvements

Users can now view extension documentation in the UI.

Support for PostgreSQL 12.3 and RabbitMQ 3.8.3

Pipelines installer now installs PostgreSQL 12.3 and RabbitMQ 3.8.3. 

New runtime images added for Go 1.14 and 1.15

We released new images that will be used as default images when a user specifies Go 1.14 or 1.15 as the language and version in their pipelines yaml configuration.

Resolved Issues

  1. Fixed an issue, where users were not able to add a pipeline source, when trailing slash was present in Bitbucket Server integration URL.
  2. Fixed an issue, where canceling a Jenkins step did not work for multibranch Jenkins pipelines.
  3. Fixed an issue, where the first run of a Jenkins step would trigger a multibranch Jenkins pipeline without parameters, causing the step to fail.
  4. Fixed an issue, where syncing a pipeline was failing if a Jenkins step's branch name contained a slash.
  5. Fixed an issue, where node pools list default badge was cut off for long names.
  6. Fixed an issue, where the user was prevented from saving changes to node pool configuration unless specific fields on the Edit node pool page were edited.

Pipelines 1.8.0

Released: September 8, 2020

Requires Artifactory 7.8.0 or newer.


New Extensions Source Format and Version Identification (Breaking Change)

The required format for Pipelines Extensions source repositories has changed to accommodate redesign of version management.

Improved control over execution logic of parent and child pipelines

Pipeline DSL can set a dependencyMode  parameter and chronological  flag so that a pipeline will not execute until its parent pipeline is in a known state of completion. These configuration options help ensure that the resources used by the pipeline are in a steady state that will not be overwritten by another pipeline or run.

Skip build on commit

A developer can now override an automatic pipeline trigger on commit by including the text [skipRun] in a commit message.

Cancel previous runs on commit

A GitRepo resource now recognizes optional configuration of a cancelPendingRunsOn event, to automatically cancel any queued or in-progress run that was triggered by the same GitRepo resource. 

Skip Downstream When Resource not Updated

Resources may now be optionally configured through a newVersionOnly flag to trigger only when an input resource has been updated by the prior step or pipeline.

Resolved Issues

  1. Fixed an issue where steps were occasionally stuck in Queued state when executing on a dynamic node pool
  2. Fixed an issue where custom images could not be pulled when executing on a Kubernetes node pool

Pipelines System.yaml

This release introduces a new system configuration file, allowing system configurations to be handled externally to the application, before/after the installation process. Learn More >

Fine grained security

JFrog Pipelines now works with the unified permission model to allow you to define fine grained permissions on  Pipeline sources. Admins can also control which integrations and node pools are available for each pipeline source. Depending on the user's permission for pipeline sources, they can view appropriate integrations and node pools.

Multibranch Pipeline

To enable implementing Gitflow based workflows, JFrog Pipelines now supports multi-branch pipelines. Defining a multi-branch pipeline source enables JFrog Pipelines to monitor all the branches of pipeline source Git repository and trigger the respective pipeline in that branch.

Dynamic Nodes

Admins can provide AWS credentials to bring up nodes dynamically on AWS for use in a node pool and automatically tear them down after step execution is completed. 

New installation types

JFrog Pipelines now supports Kubernetes, RPM  and Debian installation types for the core services.
