      Description

      See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/33815008/how-to-configure-xvfb-default-installation-on-jenkins-startup

      I am using groovy scripts copied to /usr/share/jenkins/ref/init.groovy.d/ to do the initial setup of a Docker Jenkins instance. Later I create jobs using the Job DSL Plugin that require Xvfb.

      I can't figure out how to initialize a "default" installation of Xvfb using groovy scripts. I have a work-around where I put a copy of org.jenkinssci.plugins.xvfb.XvfbBuildWrapper.xml and then in the groovy scripts I have one script that runs "Jenkins.instance.doReload()". This broke when I upgraded from 1.0.6 to 1.1.3 since the format of the xml file changed.

      What is the right way to script the creation of a default Xvfb installation?

          Should this be an issue for DSL Plugin or xvfb Plugin?

          Hi Chris, I've answered on stackoverflow, pasted here for others to find as well:

          Use this script in `init.groovy.d` directory:

          import jenkins.model.Jenkins
          import org.jenkinsci.plugins.xvfb.*
          
          def installation = new XvfbInstallation('default', '/usr/local/bin', null)
          
          Jenkins.getInstance()
                 .getDescriptorByType(Xvfb.XvfbBuildWrapperDescriptor.class)
                 .setInstallations(installation)
          

          The `default` is the name of the Xvfb installation, and `/usr/local/bin` is the directory where Xvfb binary resides, change accordingly.
