How to build my own docker images in CloudBees Core on Modern Cloud Platforms


  • I would like to build my own docker images in CloudBees Core on Modern Cloud Platforms



There are two approaches

  • 1) Use DinD by creating a new Pod Template and including the Container Template required
  • 2) Use Kaniko to build Dockerfiles without Docker

1) DinD approach

Pod Templates can be created at CJOC or Master level.

  • In CJOC, access to CJOC main page, click on the view All and open the kubernetes shared cloud config page.
  • In a Master, go to Manage Jenkins > Kubernetes Pod Template.

Add a new Pod Template

Click on the Add Pod Template button and fill the following fields

Name   : pod-dind
Labels : pod-dind
Usage  : Only build jobs with label expressions matching the node

Add the DinD container

Click on the Add Container button and use one of the docker DinD images:

Name                   : dind
Docker image           : docker:18.06.1-ce-dind
Working directory      : /home/jenkins
Allocate pseudo-TTY    : checked
Run in privileged mode : checked

Testing job

In order to test the Pod Template, create a new Pipeline job using the following code.

    node('pod-dind') {
        container('dind') {

            stage('Build My Docker Image') { 
                sh 'docker info'

                sh 'touch Dockerfile'
                sh 'echo "FROM centos:7" > Dockerfile'
                sh "cat Dockerfile" 
                sh "docker -v" 
                sh "docker info" 
                sh "docker build -t my-centos:1 ." 

Expected output:

[Pipeline] node

Agent specification [Kubernetes Pod Template] (pod-dind):

2) Kaniko approach
