Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 860036
Jenkins Server no longer displays "available" plugins for installation
Last modified: 2015-05-14 18:59:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Created Jenkins application - all good. Navigated to "Manage plug-ins -> Available" tab but it is an empty list. Also on the "manage jenkins" page, I see an error about "It appears that your reverse proxy set up is broken." Seems like Jenkins is unable to reach outside hence empty available plugin list ??
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Jenkins ver. 1.457
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Jenkins application
2. Go to "Manage plug-ins -> Available"
3. Go to "Manage Jenkins"
One of the OpenShift user also raised this issue today:
To install plugin go to Manage Jenkins -> Manage Plugins -> Advanced, at buttom right click "Check now" to update jenkins.
After this is done, the available tab won't be empty and user should be able to manage and install plugins
auto update is disabled due to bug 836204
Thanks Hou; do you know how long "check now" operation takes ? Its been 30 mins and all I see is a page with the message:
Go back to update center"
Also what about the message "It appears that your reverse proxy set up is broken."- is it benign ?
Hou: There was something wrong with my jenkins server application; recreating a new jenkins server application cleared up the problem. Your instructions from comment 2 worked great. I may create a KB article on this.
Thanks for your help!
developer will attempt to reproduce
Closing this issue, as there is no bug. To populate the lists of available updates, comment 2 has it right: The user must explicitly press the button in the Update Center to check for updates.
In a future release, we may use the Jenkins REST API to fire this update during cart installation; however, the API is only available in Jenkins 1.467+, which we do not currently support.
