So, the Hudson/Jenkins EC2 plugin?

Great idea. HORRIBLE DOCUMENTATION.

I’m setting this up now, and here’s our list of issues. So far.

EC2 Permissions

There’s no list of EC2 permissions you need. So far, we’ve needed to add:

  • DescribeInstanceAttribute
  • DescribeInstances
  • DescribeKeyPairs
  • StartInstances
  • StopInstances
  • RunInstances

RSA Private Key

The field labelled “RSA Private Key” doesn’t mean the private key for the x.509 cert, like you think it does. It means an SSH private key.

With that out of the way, I’m launching instances now. We’ll see how it goes.

  1. As of at least 1.16, DescribeRegions is also required.
