Plugins required for Preparing Jenkins for Docker Agent-Based Builds


There is no mention of the plugins required to run docker on Jenkins in the video or lab for 08. Preparing Jenkins for Docker Agent-Based Builds.

According to StackOverflow:

You have to install 2 plugins: Docker plugin and Docker Pipeline.

    @danielclough there are many approaches to make docker work with jenkins. The one you suggested (using a docker plugin for jenkins) did not work when I created this content last year. So we followed the path of installing docker client directly inside the jenkins container.

    I have tried the plugins that you mention here this year for another course of mine and does work great, also is simpler to use. When we revamp the course in the coming days, I am going to incorporate the new approach.

    P.S. @danielclough thank you for all the suggestions you are sending our way. Its not only useful to know the issues, but also is going to benefit all the students of this course. Keep it coming.
