Is there an automated process I can rely on, as an organisation's artifact repository / proxy manager, to publish configuration updates to dependent continous integration servers and developers?
For instance, if for some reason, I have to create or move a repository / proxy URL, is there any way to update Jenkins or TeamCity or whichever CI servers are in use in my organisation?
(apart from sending emails to the server administrators, naturally)
At the moment I am carrying this out manually, so all CI servers and all developers need to edit their settings.xml files.
I imagine such integration would be easy if one organisation such as Atlassian created a CI server and repo proxy, but I don't think any organisation does, or is there another approach, based on file shares for instance?
I have seen one solution where the organisation bundled the settings.xml with the maven rpm package and rolled it out as an upgrade, but I'm hoping for something simpler.
