The error you got only happens when Jenkins does not have permission as a sudo user on the Linux machine.

This works perfectly fine on windows but in Linux, you need to provide sudo permissions.

To get over the error follow these steps:

Step 1: open terminal

Step 2: $sudo nano /etc/sudousers

Step 3: at the end of the file add the following statements:

  • Save and exit

Step 4: Next is you have to go to your job->configure->build triggers->build periodically on your Jenkins page and add sudo in front of your compile statement

It’ll look like this:

Cd /file_path/

Sudo javac

Java filename
