How to export and import Jenkins job.

If you have multiple jenkins instances, there might be a requirement to export an existing jenkins job, that could be further imported into the newer jenkins instance.

We will learn how to do the export/import of jenkins job using jenkins cli.

  • Jenkins Home Page 
  • Manage Jenkins
  • Jenkins CLI.
  • Download  jenkins-cli.jar


  • Click on Jenkins CLI.




Once file "jenkins-cli.jar" file has been downloaded, we are ready to export our Jenkins job, lets do it.
Open your terminal and run the below commands.

Authenticate and List down your jobs to identify the one, which one you want to export, replace "your-jenkins-server-url:your_server_port" from your source jenkins server's url and port.

cyberkeeda@jenkins-master:~$ java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -s "http://your-jenkins-server-url:your_server_port" -auth UserName:Password  list-jobs

djpass-ansible
djpass-docker-app
docker ps

Now, from above enlisted jobs i want to export the one named as "djpass-docker-app".
Run the below command and replace the highlighted one by yours.

cyberkeeda@jenkins-master:~$  java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -s "http://your-jenkins-server-url:your_server_port" -auth UserName:Password get-job djpass-docker-app > djpass-docker-app.xml

We have successfully exported our jenkins job named as "djpass-docker-app" as an xml file named as "djpass-docker-app.xml"

How to import Jenkins job to different Jenkins server.

  • Go to your new jenkins server dashboard, where you want to import.
