Description

A race condition during Jenkins startup could result in the wrong order of execution of commands during initialization.On Jenkins 2.81 and newer, including LTS 2.89.1, this could in rare cases (we estimate less than 20% of new instances) result in failure to initialize the setup wizard on the first startup. This resulted in the following security settings not being set to their usual strict default:Affected instances need to be configured to restrict access.

Solution(s)

  • jenkins-lts-upgrade-2_81
  • jenkins-upgrade-2_95
