Passwordless Privileges to Jenkins as sudo user

Giving Jenkins sudo privileges to write in Ubuntu involves adding the Jenkins user to the sudo group. Here's how you can do it using the usermod command:

Open a terminal on your Ubuntu machine.

  • Add the Jenkins user to the sudo group:

            sudo usermod -aG sudo jenkins

Explanation of the command:

  • sudo: Run the command with superuser privileges.
  • usermod: Modify user account properties.
  • -aG sudo: Add the user to the "sudo" group.
  • jenkins: The username of the Jenkins user.

You might also need to grant passwordless sudo access to the Jenkins user. To do this, edit the sudoers file:

            sudo visudo

  • Add the following line to the file, replacing "jenkins" with the actual username if it's different:

            jenkins ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL

  • This line allows the Jenkins user to execute all commands with sudo privileges without being prompted for a password.
  • Save and exit the editor. In most terminal editors, you can press Ctrl + X, then Y, and finally Enter to save the changes.

Now the Jenkins user should have sudo privileges and be able to execute commands requiring elevated permissions. Keep in mind that granting passwordless sudo access should be done with caution and only for trusted users, as it could potentially introduce security risks.

Experiment No. 6 Title: Exploring Containerization and Application Deployment with Docker

  Experiment No. 6 Title: Exploring Containerization and Application Deployment with Docker  Objective: The objective of this experiment is to provide hands-on experience with Docker containerization and application deployment by deploying an Apache web server in a Docker container. By the end of this experiment, you will understand the basics of Docker, how to create Docker containers, and how to deploy a simple web server application. Introduction Containerization is a technology that has revolutionised the way applications are developed, deployed, and managed in the modern IT landscape. It provides a standardised and efficient way to package, distribute, and run software applications and their dependencies in isolated environments called containers. Containerization technology has gained immense popularity, with Docker being one of the most well-known containerization platforms. This introduction explores the fundamental concepts of containerization, its benefits, and how it differs

Experiment No. 10 Title: Create the GitHub Account to demonstrate CI/CD pipeline using Cloud Platform.

  Experiment No. 10 Title: Create the GitHub Account to demonstrate CI/CD pipeline using Cloud Platform. Objective: The objective of this experiment is to help you create a GitHub account and set up a basic CI/CD pipeline on GCP. You will learn how to connect your GitHub repository to GCP, configure CI/CD using Cloud Build, and automatically deploy web pages to an Apache web server when code is pushed to your repository. Introduction: Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines are essential for automating the deployment of web applications. In this experiment, we will guide you through creating a GitHub account and setting up a basic CI/CD pipeline using Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to copy web pages for an Apache HTTP web application. Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is a crucial practice in modern software development. It involves automating the processes of code integration, testing, and deployment to ensure that software changes are co

Experiment No. 5 Title: Applying CI/CD Principles to Web Development Using Jenkins, Git, and Local HTTP Server

  Experiment No. 5 Title: Applying CI/CD Principles to Web Development Using Jenkins, Git, and Local HTTP Server  Objective: The objective of this experiment is to set up a CI/CD pipeline for a web development project using Jenkins, Git, and webhooks, without the need for a Jenkinsfile. You will learn how to automatically build and deploy a web application to a local HTTP server whenever changes are pushed to the Git repository, using Jenkins' "Execute Shell" build step. Introduction: Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is a critical practice in modern software development, allowing teams to automate the building, testing, and deployment of applications. This process ensures that software updates are consistently and reliably delivered to end-users, leading to improved development efficiency and product quality. In this context, this introduction sets the stage for an exploration of how to apply CI/CD principles specifically to web development using J
