A Jenkins server is running under Java 1.7 on a linux machine and I need to change it to 1.8 so that I can run a specific plugin.
The Linux machine has a Java 1.8 JDK/JRE installed, but I cant find a way to tell the Jenkins server to use it? I've found guides on Windows servers how to do this, but nothing that relates or transfers to Linux Jenkins servers.
Is there a way to change the JRE used by the Jenkins server on linux?
