Managing Jenkins plugins

Jenkins derives most of its power from plugins. As discussed in the previous chapter, every plugin that gets installed inside Jenkins manifests itself as a parameter, either inside Jenkins system configurations or inside a Jenkins job. Let's see where and how to install plugins.

In the current section, we will see how to manage plugins using the Jenkins plugins manager. We will also see how to install and configure plugins.

The Jenkins Plugin Manager section is a place to install, uninstall, and upgrade Jenkins plugins. Let us understand it in detail:
