How-To manipulate a Jenkins Job with the Script Console

This is just a nice addition to the fully automated setup of Jenkins described in One-Click Jenkins Setup.

Let's add a nightly build trigger via the (Groovy) Script Console. The console is accessible through Jenkins -> Manage Jenkins -> Script Console.

def job = Jenkins.instance.getItemByFullName("planets-homepage")

// add nightly trigger
job.addTrigger(new hudson.triggers.TimerTrigger("@midnight"))

That's it. Our job now has a nightly build trigger...nice.
