10. Advanced Builds > Parameterized Build Jobs

Parameterized Build Jobs

Parameterized builds are a powerful concept that enable you to add another dimension to your build jobs.

The Parameterized Build plugin lets you configure parameters for your build job, that can be either entered by the user when the build job is triggered, or (as we will see later) from another build job.

For example, you might have a deployment build job, where you want to choose the target environment in a drop-down list when you start the build job. Or you may want to specify the version of the application you want to deploy. Or, when running a build job involving web tests, you might want to specify the browser to run your Selenium or WebDriver tests in. You can even upload a file to be used by the build job.
