I am going through the tutorial for Recommended Pattern for Vault Approle Use Recommended Pattern for Vault AppRole Use | Vault - HashiCorp Learn
The example uses Jenkins as CI but I am not quite following up with the naming in the document.
It mentions a Worker and a Runner. My understanding is that ‘worker ’ is a Jenkins node aka Jenkins slave.
The document says ’ The worker node runs jobs on spawned container runners that are short-lived’
Later it goes on to describe on how Worker spawns a Runner.
What is the runner? Jenkins documentation does not have any concept of a runner.
Our Jenkins workers are used for running Docker Using Docker with Pipeline . What is the ‘Runner’ in this scenario?
