JenkinsMobi V4 and Google Authenticator support

April 15, 2013 Leave a comment

When you configure Jenkins with OpenID SSO, the authentication phase goes through an external web-site (GitHub, Google or others) for authenticating your credentials: when authentication succeded, Jenkins gives you a Session-ID to continue using the API until the session expires.

From JenkinsMobi V4.6.1 (see how to upgrade from JenkinsMobi home screen) you can even automatically manage a 2-step SSO Authentication with your Google Account and Google Authenticator.


  1. Edit your JenkinsMobi settings and put your Jenkins URL and SSO username and password.
  2. Whenever your Google SSO request a 2-step authentication, you will see a pop-up asking to enter your one-time verification code
  3. Tap on “Auth App” to jump directly to Google Authenticator
  4. Read the verification code and tap on the “back” button of your Android phone
  5. Enter the verification code and tap Verify
  6. JenkinsMobi contacts Google SSO and enters again your SSO credentials and one-time verfication code

Your authenticated session will last for the time-to-live of Jenkins Session: should the session be disconnected, you would need to go through the Google SSO and 2-step verification again.

Enjoy JenkinsMobi with Google Authenticator securely over the Internet 🙂
