Jenkins GUI tasks

Tools:

  • Jenkins
  • Windows

Issue:

If your script invokes some GUI on windows and Jenkins is installed as window service, it would not have access to desktop tools.

Resolution:

Open windows service manager

  • Windows+R ->┬áservices.msc

Look for Jenkins services

  • Right click on service, open properties

Open “Log on” tab.

Check “Allow service to interact with desktop.”

Restart service.

Now when your script will invoke, GUI, it should go fine.
