GoCD

Previously, our team used Jenkins. However, since it's a shared deployment resource we don't have admin access. We tried GoCD as it's open source and we really like. We set up our deployment pipeline to run whenever codes are merged to master, run the unit test and revert back if it doesn't pass. Once it's deployed to the staging environment, we can simply do 1-click to deploy the appropriate version to production. We use this to deploy to an on-prem server and also AWS. Some deployment pipelines use custom Powershell script for.Net application, some others use Bash script to execute the docker push and cloud formation template to build elastic beanstalk.

Alternatives Considered

I prefer using GoCD compared to Jenkins. The UI makes sense, I like the simplicity to hit the 'Play' button for a straightforward deployment of the 'Play +' if you need to override some settings when deploying whereas Jenkins, you have the whole page for each pipeline. The environment makes sense but can often confuse the user while GoCD simply has a drop-down to select your environment.

Return on Investment

  • ROI has been good since it's open source
  • Settings.xml need to be backed up periodically. It contains all the settings for your pipelines! We accidentally deleted before and we have to restore and re-create several missing pipelines
  • More straight forward use of API and allows filtering e.g., pull all pipelines triggered after this date
