Jenkins Redhat Packages

To use this repository, run the following command:

  sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/jenkins.repo
  sudo rpm --import

If you've previously imported the key from Jenkins, the rpm --import will fail because you already have a key. Please ignore that and move on.

  yum install jenkins

The rpm packages were signed using this key:

uid                      Jenkins Project 
sub   rsa4096 2020-03-30 [E] [expires: 2023-03-30]
