Installing Jenkins X

Installing on Microsoft Windows

Support for Jenkins X on Microsoft Windows is experimental and currently unsupported. It is not advised to use Windows as a method of installing and configuring Jenkins X.

Installation on Microsoft Windows can be performed through the Chocolatey, a third-party package management system that provides convenient one-step commands for local Jenkins X installations and upgrades.

Install the Chocolatey package management system using an Administrative Shell:

  1. Right-click Start  Command Prompt (Admin).

  2. At the shell prompt, execute a powershell.exe command to download and install the choco binary and set the installation path so that the binary can be executed:

    @"%SystemRoot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -NoProfile -InputFormat None -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString(''))" && SET "PATH=%PATH%;%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\chocolatey\bin"
  3. Install Jenkins X using Chocolatey:

    choco install jenkins-x

You can update to the latest version of Jenkins X using Chocolatey:

choco upgrade jenkins-x
