Installing the plug-in

Download the plug-in and save it in the plugins subdirectory in the Hudson directory. For example, C:\.hudson\plugins (Windows) or $HUDSON_HOME/plugins (Unix). After the plug-in is installed, restart Hudson.

Configuring a job to use Surround SCM

1.      Create a new project.

2.      Select Surround SCM in the Source Code Management options. The Surround SCM connection information fields are displayed.

3.      Enter the path to the Surround SCM CLI. For example, C:\Program Files\Seapine\Surround SCM\sscm.exe.

4.      Enter the Surround SCM Server name, Server port, Username, and Password.

5.      Enter the Branch name and Repository path to poll from or synchronize with your workspace.

6.      Set any additional options for build triggers or steps.

7.      Save the configuration. The job option is added to the main Hudson page.

Synchronizing workspaces with Surround SCM

The plug-in supports polling, synchronizing, and browsing latest changes. If polling is enabled, Hudson polls the Surround SCM repository to check for changes. If changes are found, the workspace is synchronized with the repository and a build is automatically started. All files are retrieved to the workspace subdirectory in the Hudson job directory. You cannot change the directory to retrieve files to.

If a build is manually started, a get command is performed to synchronize the workspace with the repository. All get commands through Hudson to the repository on the branch specified in the Surround SCM job configuration are recursive.

After a build, you can use the Changes and Console Output options to view the changes and output.
