Jenkins Cleanup Old Builds

I wrote a quick shell script to cleanup old Jenkins builds. This will delete any build older than 30 days.


# Author: Steve Stonebraker

# Place in crontab
# @daily /bin/bash -x /root/scripts/ > /root/scripts/jenkins_cleanup.log

find /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/*/builds/ -maxdepth 1 -mindepth 1 -mtime +30 -type d -regextype egrep -regex '^.*/[0-9]*$' -exec rm -rfv {} \;
