[ Jenkins ] 3 ways to trigger jenkins task on the remote host

NOTE : task token can be get from `Build Triggers` > `Trigger builds remotely (e.g., from scripts)`

way1) install Parameterized Remote Trigger Plugin

We can login using Username + Token

way2) use curl

 $ curl -kX POST https://jenkins_url/job/jenkin_job_name/build \
--data token=whatever_token_it_is \
--data-urlencode json="{\"parameter\": [{\"name\":\"param1\", \"value\":\"value1\"}]}" 

con : do not know whether the task is finished running, hence the task result ( success/fail ) is unknown

NOTE : This `Build Trigger > Trigger builds remotely (e.g., from scripts)`option will be available if we enable security on

Manage Jenkins > Configure Global Security > Enable security

way3)  use jenkins-cli.jar

NOTE : the public key need to be setup on https://jenkins_url/me/configure
