Overall Satisfaction with Jenkins
Jenkins is the main workhorse supporting our build and deploy pipeline and is used by both developers and dev-ops alike. Jenkins provides a sort of single source of truth by running tests and verification steps to ensure that code going out to production is functional and safe. It also allows our team of over 100 developers to safely deploy production changes many times per day.
- Highly configurable to individual needs
- Many available plugins and integrations
- Support for many different languages
- UI feels outdated and unintuitive, especially to newer users.
- User management is too simple.
- Enables us to safely deploy many different projects multiple times per day.
- Allows us to automate many tasks that were previously manual.
- Reduces the risk of making a production release by allowing us to run tests and verification steps.
I have no experience to speak to the availability and quality of Jenkins customer support.

Jenkins is well suited for large and/or distributed teams where synchronization of production releases is critical. Jenkins allows us to reduce risk of a bad release by gatekeeping deployment with a variety of useful checks and verifications. Jenkins also has a huge amount of community support, as well as a large variety of plugins and integrations. Integrations with GitHub and Slack are extremely useful for our team.
