I have installed Jenkins on my Red Hat server following this tutorial. But by mistake I skipped the default plugins part.

I tried deleting /var/lib/jenkins/config.xml but this file getting created again and again.

  • How can I get back to the initial setting where I can do it correctly this time?
  • Or is there a way I can go to default plugin installation without doing much changes?

I tried googling but all the documents that match are for resetting admin passwords.

NOTE: I do know that I can go to plugin management and install the plugins I want. However, I'm currently ended up with a blank slate and I'm not sure which are all the plugins I should install.


Check this link https://github.com/jenkinsci/jenkins/blob/jenkins-2.19.4/core/src/main/resources/jenkins/install/platform-plugins.json list of succested plugins. You can install this plugins manually.

    You may have misread the question. It's not about the plugins. It's about resetting settings. – Raja Anbazhagan Jul 11 '18 at 1:43
