We are pleased to announce the release of version 5.5 of the Micro Focus Application Automation Tools Plugin for Jenkins.

This plugin enables you to create and use virtual services, and trigger the execution of performance and functional tests as part of your Jenkins continuous integration. It can also deliver jobs and integrate with your release pipeline on Jenkins with Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management products, including the cutting-edge ALM Octane.5 application auto jenkins.pngVersion 5.5 includes Enhancements

Supported Jenkins versions
Starting with version 5.5, this plugin will only support the latest five LTS versions of Jenkins (currently 2.60.3). This is a result of the Jenkins policy to no longer support older update centers. Jenkins 2.54 and higher requires you to have Java 8 installed on the machine.

To recover any information loss during an upgrade relating to package names, back up the Jenkins folder and then run the Rebranding script.
