Jenkins & Uipath orchestrator Integration

Hi all,
Good Evening, Hope all are well and safe.

I was trying out the CICD (Continuous integration & Continuous Development) pipeline using the Uipath-Github-Jenkins-UipathOrchestrator.
My plan was when I updated the package in GitHub through the studio, the Jenkins should update the same version in the Uipath Orchestrator of the respective process. Integration between the first 3 tools (i.e…, Uipath Studio-GitHub-Jenkins) was successful,

I am able to see the new build in Jenkins which I updated in the Github, but the problem is occurring between Jenkins and Orchestrator. In the Jenkins Build output console, I am getting the below error

Kindly let me know if you have any suggestions to make the CICD pipeline work.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi @Chinthala_Sathwik_Reddy,

It looks like there was a non-descriptive internal error, potentially due to the workspace path that you are using.

Consider using a Jenkins workspace path outside of C:\WINDOWS\, as this may lead to issues.

Hi @AlvinStanescu,

Thanks for your response. Could please elaborate on the issue. Following is the Build configuration of Jenkins with Orchestrator, can you please check it and let me know what is the path which we had to mention in the below screen,

Can you please check the configuration and me weather i am on the rigth path or i gave the wrong info in the fields, cause i have tried giving different paths but it was failing every time with the bit similar error.

Thanks & Regards,
SathwikReddy

It seems that you’re trying to use paths outside of the workspace folder, which is not supported and is discouraged in Jenkins anyway, since a CI/CD build should never write to external paths (nor ideally read).

Please use workspace paths, e.g. ${WORKSPACE}\MyTestingProcess (or simply MyTestingProcess, since by default all paths are relative to the workspace folder).

okay, i will try that. Thanks Alvin. Do you have any docs are videos on the configuration part Alvin, That would really help us a lot.

The current documentation can be found here and an introduction to CI/CD integration with Jenkins can be found here.
