Powerful CICD tool to handle all stage in pipeline

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We use Jenkins as the main CICD in our project, we organize jobs with similar function into Group, we create jobs for the build, compile, and unit test each time a developer check-in their code to a specified branch and build a new version of artifact when having master branch commit. We add some additional plugin and create Jenkins jobs for run system test, automation test, and integration test automatically when having new commit to master and have jobs for deploy our new code to destination VMs on demand.

Pluspunten:

Jenkins is very simple to installation and configuration as standalone or cluster, just a few clicks to get Jenkins ready, it is flexible and easy to create Pipeline and Job from UI or by YML file. Jenkins support many plugins allows it easy to integrate with other tool and software such as AWS, Sonar, JMeter... and Jenkins support almost major language and OS.

Minpunten:

Jenkins UI is simple and it is hard for manage when we have a large number of jobs and pipelines. It does not have features for tracking job history, sometimes accident deletes or changes a job and we unable to recover it.

Easy to understand, ease of use, and sense of the operation of automation and scripting

4,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: As automation of script files and file execution, the feel of operation in the system is easy to understand. I started from a place I had never used, but it felt that way. In a nutshell, it is an image of the Linux Cron and Windows task scheduler. It is easy to manage problems that have been resolved, specific effects and CI/CD processing details. When the agent load increases, there is no need to respond manually; automatic escalation will distribute the load. The file (Jenkinsfile) describing the functions, points and CI/CD processing that contributed to the problem can also be managed in the Git repository as a set with the source code, so it is easy to check the processing details and modify the Jenkinsfile.

Pluspunten:

The amount of information in the search results is significant, and it is easy to operate because it is free (easy to stop in case of emergency). A Docker agent and JenkinsX are also available, so they are compatible with the latest technology. Because it can be used not only on-premises but also with Kubernetes, it is helpful because the learned technology can be used for a long time, even if the stage changes.

Minpunten:

Since the configuration screen is displayed in a tabbed format, there are times when you cannot see what you want to edit unless you show it at the bottom of the browser screen.

One of the best CI/CD experience

3,0 vorig jaar

Pluspunten:

- It has huge customisation options while creating a new CI/CD pipeline- It greatly reduces the developer effort by automating a lot of stuff- Great for running regular cron jobs

Minpunten:

- The UI can be made much better - The erorr reporting in case of pipeline failures can be much better. One of the competitor which wins over Jenkins here is CircleCI

Past its best

4,0 3 maanden geleden

Pluspunten:

In its time, Jenkins was an outstanding tool. It was my go to for automation or all kinds, not just continuous integration. I have successfully delivered several projects with it. Jenkinsfiles and JCASC have been solid attempts to improve the Jenkins experience over the years.

Minpunten:

Jenkins is hard to operate, gives you fewer and fewer options for well-maintained plugins and it's relatively easy to break pipelines in hard to understand ways. I would not recommend using Jenkins now that there are so many better options. I have spent many hours in an organisation where it was the preferred tool, trying to make pipelines more reliable, build custom plugins and meet security standards. It can be done but other products have so much of that prebuilt, why spend the time!

Best CICD

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: Jenkins helps me to automate ton of manual tasks and saves lot of time and effort. Not just developers, it can be used as reporting tool for code analysis and functionality which will help the management.It is quite easy to setup and orchestrate pipeline.

Pluspunten:

Jenkins is easy to deploy and use. The process for onboarding the users and designing pipelines and test automations are very straight forward. It does not need any specific training and the interface is intuitive and supports various programming languages.

Minpunten:

I cannot find any major drawback in jenkins. I personally feel the documentation that provided in the interface could be improved, so that the users doesn't need refer the documentation seperately.

Pluspunten:

We can automate and configure almost everything using jenkins, it can be used to start/stop servers, backup dbs, build and deploy codes in the environments, etc.

Minpunten:

The complete logs may not be visible from Jenkins, but still, the main error can be seen. I can't think of any other problems in Jenkins

Opmerkingen: Is the better tool to the CI/CD Deployment, for DevOps is a Must.

Pluspunten:

I use Jenkins from 2 years now and is the best software con Continuous Integration and Continuous Deploy process. Have a lot of plugins integrated like as JaCoCo, sonar, maven etc. Develop and release are become very simply and automated with jenkins.

Minpunten:

The first Installation is not very simple, with docker can be improved. Any plugins have a problems with legacy version of Jenkins

Flexible CI and CD tool

4,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It is a very good CI CD tool. If you use standard plugins and use standard CI CD workflows, and avoid complex groovy code, then Jenkins hits the sweet spot between user friendliness and flexibility.

Pluspunten:

Allows creating simple as well as very customized Jenkins pipelines. Allows scripting using Groovy and shell scripts. Has tons of useful plugins , easily integrates with many other software systems. It hits the sweet spot between high customizability and developer friendliness if you stick to standard workflows. Complex customization of build pipelines is also possible.

Minpunten:

The ability to build very customized build pipelines is sometimes also a disadvantage. It's too easy to create a complicated pipeline with Groovy code which could be difficult to maintain. Also the Jenkins UI can be confusing for a novice user.

4,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I'm running multiple backup or VM configuration tasks. I like it, but I also see potential issues in the future. Because of that I will think about migrating to another solution in the future.

Pluspunten:

I like it's flexibility. You can almost do whatever you want with it.

Minpunten:

Plugins can be outdated, also documentation should be fixed. I also hate that there is no way to configure Jenkins with Database backend (everything is kept in files). Because of that there is no way to create multiple Jenkins instances.

Easy Deployment/ Easy Delivery

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It has helped me achieve so many things with so little knowledge. It is the heart of my orchestration system built for a very large distributed system as a software engineering intern. Because of it's reliability, it is still being used as that. Very easy to use and mixing with your creativity you can achieve almost anything .

Pluspunten:

Ability to perform any kind of deployment/orchestration.

Minpunten:

Security Vulnerability. It can be attacked from multiple places.

Must have agile tool - Jenkins

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: If the project is being developed in agile methodology Jenkins is must have tool . It is open source also can be integrated with many other software and the best part is high level of automation can be achieved with use of Jenkins. CI/CD is one of the latest trends in the market and Jenkins make it possible to achieve.

Pluspunten:

Jenkins is one of the most required tool if developer are working in agile methodologies model . Continuous integration and continuous delivery can be achieved with help of Jenkins. Where in developer can build the code test and along with it deploy . Also Jenkins make it possible to integrate with other software like git , jira which makes tasks lot more easier

Minpunten:

At first users may find it difficult to navigate through Jenkins but it's only matter of time till they get used to it . Maybe the UI maybe be done little user friendly

A open source automation for continuous integration and delivery.

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Jenkins helps us in doing the deployment for the 500+ clients server in just few hours but before it would take weeks to do the same. Best thing in it the container can be also helpful in case we need the immediate rollback. Orchestration help to achieve the continuous integration and delivery.

Pluspunten:

Jenkins is one of the best automation tool for deployment. It’s easy to configure and maintain. The Jenkins implementation don’t need large code based enchantment to configure and implement it which makes it easy to opt. The build pipeline is easy to manage with it. Jenkins helps in boosting the agile process with automation which helps in speeding the delivery of the product. Jobs are easy to configure the build and deploy the code on multiple servers at once. Various third party pulgins give the wings to it. The large plugin community and easy plugin development make the process easy.

Minpunten:

Jenkins jobs configuration wizard should be more enhanced and should come with some more features which help to setup the jobs faster. Jenkins should also increase the documentation on the plugins development. Before updating Jenkins we always need to check its compatibility with the other plugins we are working with, this process should be simple.

Jenkins - a great build tool for the masses

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Jenkins is currently used as a CI tool wherein we can commit to GIT which in turns kicks of Jenkins and it takes care of test cases execution and deployment.. its basically our CI-CD line.

Pluspunten:

1. Great plugin ecosystem, has everything we need for a CI tool..great integration with test suites, GIT and other products. 2. Robust ecosystem of developments all year around, quick bug fixes 3. set up on Azure , AWS is a breeze 4. Scheduling jobs has been its strongest forte 5. Auditing capabilities is pretty useful

Minpunten:

Plugins might be needed for the basis task, can improve the out of the box capabilities. UI can be improved, its clunky it needs to be an enterprise level tool set with easy abort for hung jobs... sometimes we need to restart Jenkins to get this going Auditing features can be improved to track user level data Error messaging can be enhanced..its pretty basic at the moment with exception handling capabilities Roles/Security feature around user privileges needs to offered too

Create and run ad-hoc and timely scheduled jobs

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: This is a really great tool for storing, managing and scheduling ad-hoc scripts, i had a great experience with Jenkins

Pluspunten:

all simple ad-hoc things need a place where it can be deployed, scheduled and run, each of the small jobs can't be deployed on a server like tomcat , so we have a server which supports this kind of use cases called Jenkins, Jenkins is majorly used for OCD deployment processes, and other adhoc jobs ,say you need to do a timely check on resource states etc .. in the Jenkins you can set the executer as machines for different projects and so that the lode can be distributed , we can have a windows or a ubuntu host , in ether of ths we can run which ever commands we run on the terminal in the Jenkins, it has a good version management, it shows the diff between the versions , and any time we can revert to the older versions, using Jenkins parallel processing are archived, there are lot of plugins available for Jenkins , using which we can do many great things, it uses cron string script for scheduling, you can easily setup Jenkins in the local and experiment on it, it has a great inline documentations, support git integrations too

Minpunten:

its a great tool i don't see any flaws, in the input parameters we could have more input types like drop down , radio buttons options etc, and

Great Continuous Integration Tool

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: * We have been using for Dev / Int / Prod deployment for Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment Jenkins for a long time and all I can say that everything is much more easier than the previous deployment procedure.

Pluspunten:

*Among all continuous integration tools , Jenkins is the best. * Deployment is not a problem when you use Jenkins * If a problem happens during the deployment of the process, all the people knows the issue. * You can have Dev - Int - Prod environments and if one fails you won't be able to deploy your product to other environment. * SonarQube integration is great *

Minpunten:

* If two person tries to deploy the product at the same time, we come across with errors. That's why someone should say that please stop the deployment for the environment Development, Integration or Production environment. So the least thing is synchronous deployment should be done for the product in the same environment which will not come with an error.

Opmerkingen: Top tool to integrate and save cost starting from day one of the project.

Pluspunten:

Integrate anything with Jenkins whether it is regression test suite, continuous integration or continuous deployment.

Minpunten:

For project where there are near to zero build failures should have been configuration to disable console output page to save some space on the UI.

Opmerkingen: Jenkins helps a lot with the CI/CD process of a company.

Pluspunten:

It is very easy to integrate a pipeline on Jenkins and the integration with GitHub is very useful.

Minpunten:

When a build is launched on Jenkins sometimes the UI on Jenkins is not correctly refreshed, we need to constantly hit the browser refresh button to see the correct status of the build.

Makes devops tasks easier

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: I use the pipeline automated by jenkins everyday and that saves my time a lot and would like to highly recommend this to anyone.

Pluspunten:

Most of the IT companies are using jenkins to automate testing, building and deployment stages of the code. We can configure jenkins to automatically trigger these steps when code merge happens to the repository. If the deployment or build got failed, I go through the jenkins logs and find the issue. There's a big community support for jenkins and we can get tech help from them.

Minpunten:

Jenkins need considerable memory, CPU and storage resources of the server to run.

One of the best CI tools

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It's the best CI tool I have ever used, lightweight, stable and easy to setup. The plugins make Jenkins very flexible so you can achieve different goals on your project, from continuous development to integration, or even both.

Pluspunten:

Jenkins supports lots of plugins which makes it very flexible and powerful. Its user-friendly GUI makes it easy to learn and follow even if you not experienced, nevertheless, if you need support there's a lot of documentation out there or optionally you may count on its extensive community to support you.

Minpunten:

Depending on the number of parameters on a job, it takes some time to load, some browsers even present a "This page is taking too long to load". Jenkins is frequently updated but the plugins are not always updating that fast, so you rely on others to get it updated/fixed for the new versions.

Minpunten:

1. Outdated User Interface and Plugins which leads to security issues 2. Need to install and manage by own
