How to get a complete plugin list from jenkins (with version)

I need a way to get a list of plugins so that I can use them with docker jenkins in the format <plugin>: <version>

1. get the jenkins cli.

The jenkins CLI will allow us to interact with our jenkins server from the command line. We can get it with a simple curl call.

curl 'localhost:8080/jnlpJars/jenkins-cli.jar' > jenkins-cli.jar

2. create a groovy script.

We need to create a groovy script to parse the information we receive from the jenkins API. This will output each plugin with its version. Save the following as plugins.groovy.

def plugins = jenkins.model.Jenkins.instance.getPluginManager().getPlugins()
plugins.each {println "${it.getShortName()}: ${it.getVersion()}"}

3. call the Jenkins API.

Use jenkins-cli.jar to call the jenkins server where it is located (localhost:8080) in this case with the username and password you use for login and then output the results to plugins.txt

java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -s http://localhost:8080 groovy --username "admin" --password "admin" = < plugins.groovy > plugins.txt

The output looks like this
