You can't go wrong with Jenkins

  • January 20, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Jenkins is the standard CI/CD solution that everyone starts from. It is versatile, has an LTS version and a multitude of plugins suitable for every imaginable use case.
What do you dislike?
Plugin hell. It is very easy to get carried away and install each and every plugin that looks suitable for a use case and forget it installed, even when not using it. If you lack the discipline to work with very few plugins, you end up with a system with so many interdependencies that no upgrade is possible, and in the end, you are forced to abandon it due to complexity.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Jenkins is used for building and testing software primarily. However, you can "subvert" it into a glorified cron scheduler that can run complex jobs and not necessarily shell or other scripts. You can also use it as a deployment system where you can program the logic of the deployment the exact way you want it. Finally, if you are up for the task, you can even use the agents it provides for remote execution for network/host management.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Jenkins is where you start your CI/CD journey from. If you make an effort to learn Groovy, it may be where you stay anyways. But even if you do not want to stay with Jenkins, it is this software and its capabilities that define the bar that every other CI/CD software needs to pass to be seriously considered by anyone. And that is why it is worth it to work with Jenkins.

What do you like best?
The team was able to use the program successfully for testing systems; also, if a new team member was onboarded, they were able to grasp the basic concepts of Jenkins very quickly.
What do you dislike?
Errors were rarely, if ever, descriptive, and a lot of digging was needed to be done to figure out the real problem. Learning the system was best done by different team members who already had experience seemed like a daunting task if one haad to do it themselves
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Running different systems that needed to be updated to be adequately tested, the benefit is manually triggering this instead of waiting, potentially causing delays.

Jenkins - Continuous Improvement

  • January 12, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Jenkins is a very customizable CI environment with a lot of community support, knowledge and plugins. It's been an industry standard as far as I have known for over 10 years.
What do you dislike?
Although jenkins did have a huge upgrade when they introduced groovy-driven multibranch pipelines, I feel that there are other technologies available that did a lot better with their execution of the concept.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The problems that are solved with Jenkins are generally build deployment, test automation and other miscellaneous repeating scripting requirements for software development and testing.

extra safety for devleoper

  • January 07, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
We can configure the Jenkins in our way.
I am using Jenkins primarily for testing the particular branch, and the other developers also can test from that branch without taking the branch in local (just need to create the pipeline).
I can set the multiple things before deployment, like a test, lint, etc
What do you dislike?
I tried to open the Jenkins on iPhone, and it seems not working.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I mosty use Jenkins for deployment and testing.
After using jenkins, I feel its great tool for developer.

Jenkins - CI/CD

  • January 05, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Automation, Continuous Integration, and Continuous Deployment. Build Jobs and automated tests. Integration with Bitbucket and slack. Just on a Pull Request Creation on bitbucket test pipeline is run which will avoid human Intervention. Build status messages on the slack channel.
What do you dislike?
Learning curve. It is time-consuming to create a job. UX is not good. No backup and restore feature. Painful while upgrading plugins.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I have created a test and deployed pipelines with jenkins. Every Pull Request creation/update will automatically trigger the test pipeline and the status of the build pipeline is sent to the slack channel. I have created pipelines that will deploy our production builds on the servers.

CI/CD for everyone!

  • January 04, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
This automation server this an essential tool for today's development office. Its plethora of features, varying from simple tasks (like compilation and deployment) to more complex ones, made the programmer's life easier and free of repetitive tasks. Once you try this server on your development life cycle, it's hard to go back and manually do CI/CD.
What do you dislike?
There is some learning curve from the newcomer that is not avoidable, intrinsic to the server management and its features, that make a little tricky a similar to the steps make on a local or manual CI/CD cycle. Some options, although well explained, have others that are ratter scarsed explained in its GUI, but with a google search, some or all doubts are gone.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The primary benefit of adopting this server is the standardization of the deployment cycle and all of these steps. All of the everyday tasks in this area have been ripped off our programmer's shoulders, with a time reduction involved that allows them to make value proposals for the company. If you are running a software development company, take this into account.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Consider delegate or have a DevOps role for administration of the server. This role focuses on value options for the CI/CD of the company's clients in the long term, and the programmer's life will turn into a productive and focused day, worry-free.

Powerful tool for continuous integration

  • December 29, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Some other options in the market but Jenkins is quite stable. Also, it's well known so decreasing the learning curve for new hires. The images they used in the front end is quite funny and adds some vibes to the daily work!
What do you dislike?
The tool is stable which means you will not expect some fancy functions when using it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It's a powerful tool for continuous integration and all medium-large size softwares will require one to make integrations smoothly. Our software has a long history, there's no way we suddenly adopt other new tools.
