I am not sure whether Pega 7.1.9 supports Jenkins integration or is it only supported from Jenkins 7.2.x onwards. Could someone please list out all the possible approaches using which we can automate deployment in Pega 7.1.9 ?
In Pega 7.1.9 some users tried to perform the auto deployment using prpcutils and jenkins, but there is no documentation regarding this implementation. May be you can have a try with the prpcutils with jenkins to automate the deployment.
Thanks for your input Mahesh. For other approaches (other than Jenkins) I found a link https://pdn.pega.com/how-import-and-export-zip-archives-command-line which describes deployment automation by setting up an altogether different JVM Environment. Could you let me know if this will be semi-automation (As we are inserting the zip file name; each time we are calling the import method through batch file) or complete automation(If we could parameterize the batch file) in deployment? It will be great if you have any documents for this approach which you could share.
Also wanted to confirm if Ninja plugins are supported in Pega 7.1.9 or not
After discussion with our product specialists about the shared documentation they think its possible but not sure how exactly we can read the parameters in the script file as we never tried it. May be you can take the help of the experts in batch file, and i don't have any documentation for this implementation.
