Which version of IQ for Jenkins should I use?

Sonatype provides two plugins for Jenkins: IQ for Hudson/Jenkins 1.x and Nexus Platform Plugin for Jenkins. This article should help clarify which version of the Jenkins plugin is appropriate for you. There is no automated transition between plugins so plugin selection is crucial to reduce redundant work. Switching in the future will require configuring the new plugin to suite your needs. Generally we suggest using Nexus Platform Plugin for Jenkins unless you have a specific need detailed in the bullet points below. Nexus Platform Plugin for Jenkins is available for download via the Jenkins Update Center whereas IQ for Hudson/Jenkins 1.x is available for download via How do I download and install the Nexus IQ Server?


Nexus Platform Plugin for Jenkins

  • I am using Jenkins 2.x
  • I am a new IQ for Jenkins user
  • I require use of Jenkins Pipelines
  • I require use of the Jenkins Credentials Plugin


IQ for Hudson/Jenkins 1.x

  • I am using Jenkins 1.x
  • I am using Hudson
  • I am an existing user who does not require Pipelines features and does not want to migrate configuration
  • I am reliant on the CLM Maven plugin's index goal and the IQ for Hudson/Jenkins module analysis feature
