Previously, I've described on this blog how to do a basic integration of NDepend with Jenkins pipeline jobs. The disadvantages of the previous post was it was essentially part of a series tailored to our build process and so not easy to view as a stand-alone article and it only covered pipelines. This complementary post covers how to perform the same level of integration with a freestyle project.
After two posts regarding building and publishing Nuget packages with Jenkins pipelines, I now follow up with details on integrating NDepend with the pipeline job.
