Jenkins and CodeStream CSRF fix

For some time, I have had the problem with Jenkins, that when I ran my Code Stream pipeline, it gave me the following error 

To fix it, I have been running the code below, in the Jenkins “Script Console” 

import jenkins.model.Jenkins

def instance = Jenkins.instance


This has been ok, until my container, running Jenkins, restarted or got updated, and then I got the error again.

Today I finally took the time, to fix it, and it was really simple.

It turns out, that the error is due to using username/password in Code Stream, and not token.

Code Stream supports, username/password, and don’t mention token, anywhere.

So I tried to replace my password, with a token I created, and it worked.

And now I don’t get the errors anymore.

So a heads up. If you are using username/password, then generate a token, and replace your password with it, to be future proof.

You generate a token, by following the steps below.

  1. Log in to Jenkins.
  2. Click you name (upper-right corner).
  3. Click Configure (left-side menu).
  4. Use “Add new Token” button to generate a new one then name it.
  5. You must copy the token when you generate it as you cannot view the token afterwards.
  6. Revoke old tokens when no longer needed.
