How to change workspace and build record Root Directory on Jenkins?


I would like Jenkins' data to be written to drive "E:" since this is the large drive on the server. Jenkins itself is installed on "C:".

How do I do that?

The default configuration that I saw is:

Workspace Root Directory: ${ITEM_ROOTDIR}/workspace
Build Record Root Directory: ${ITEM_ROOTDIR}/builds

Will the following changes help me achieve what I need?

Workspace Root Directory: E:/Jenkins/workspace
Build Record Root Directory: E:/Jenkins/builds/${ITEM_FULL_NAME}

In addition, what does "${ITEM_FULL_NAME}" mean?

I figured it out. In order to save your Jenkins data on other drive you'll need to do the following:

Workspace Root Directory: E:\Jenkins\${ITEM_FULL_NAME}\workspace
Build Record Root Directory: E:\Jenkins\${ITEM_FULL_NAME}\builds

Change Directory

You can modify the path on the config.xml file in the default directory

<projectNamingStrategy class="jenkins.model.ProjectNamingStrategy$DefaultProjectNamingStrategy"/>
