Overall Satisfaction with Jenkins

Multiple departments use Jenkins for deploying code to our dev/test/stage environments, and our ops team uses it primarily to deploy code to production endpoints.
  • Code package deployment. It wraps up and pushed out the code quickly and easily.
  • Good UI - verbose output is available, and there's an easy walk-through deploy process.
  • Multiple scripting language support - Jenkins can integrate PowerShell, Python, etc.
  • Documentation in the application itself is a bit thin.
  • Outside automation and integration aren't easily understandable. It would be nice to work in Ansible with Jenkins.
  • It's Open-source, so there's little to no cost overhead for deploying and updating Jenkins.
  • It's well known in the industry, so many employees are already familiar with it.
  • Multi-platform support means we don't have to rely upon Windows OS (and associated licensing) to use Jenkins.
It's fast -- we can deploy a package and have it running in production in minutes. It works well with HA topologies and integrates with Azure and AWS well.
Suited for integration with GitHub, pulling on your master branch, wrapping it up into a deployment package, pushing that package out to an endpoint, and using scripting to update files. This process is primarily what we use Jenkins for, and it does this work well.
