Good when everything works, however that is a rare situation

What do you like best?
The ability to execute shell scripts is both a blessing and a drawback. You can create powerful build scripts, instead of relying only on plugins.
What do you dislike?
Since Jenkins is really just a wrapper around multiple builder nodes, you cannot easily duplicate your whole environments. For instance, differences between a Mac and RHEL are so significant that you cannot really create jobs for both of the nodes.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am using Jenkins to build all software releases in a stable environment as well as test new changes from the Code Review system. If nothing breaks, it is a predictable solution.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Do not write shell scripts if not necessary. It will make your life hell.

One of the best tool for build automation

  • April 13, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Best things i like about Jenkins
1. All the project builds are at one place
2. A dashobard to show that which builds are passed and failed
3. Easily integrate with sonar and show testing coverage as a graph.
What do you dislike?
I dont know where to find the latest build. I have to go to the console output to see the download link. If there is a button on dashboard to download the latest build then it will be pretty handy
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We have multiple projects running parallely. Some projects depend on each other. Initially it was quite hard to find the dependent builds of another project and then use it for your own but now you have all at one place.

What do you like best?
Integration with the most of the tools, you can communicate Jenkins with almost everything.
What do you dislike?
The support with some tools is made by third-party plugins, I think that Jenkins should do the official plugin.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
- Automated Compilation
- Centralized operation
- Integration with Servers
- Best performance with fewer times for error detection and daily tasks

Review For Jenkins

  • April 12, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The easy configuration of the build tasks. Generally you can create build tasks in many ways, using the Jenkins DSL API or even create XML templates to achieve it. Jenkins allows to run your jobs in nodes, which makes faster builds focused on parallel computing.
What do you dislike?
When configuring the nodes for building, if something gone wrong, jenkins doesn't abort the construction. Sometimes it creates and links the nodes in bad way.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Primarly, the continous delivery process deploy artifacts a lot faster and Jenkins is a fundamental part on it.

Review of Jenkins CI

  • April 12, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I like the Jenkins ecosystem. It has basically plugins for everything, any service can be integrated with Jenkins. Writing new plugins is pretty straightforward as well. Also it is great that we can self-host the Jenkins instance, and install it pretty easily. The slaves are also very easy to add, so one can scale the CI as the resources allow it.
What do you dislike?
The product seems like it stuck in the mid 2000s, the GUI is totally outdated. Configuring the job in the UI sometimes can be tedious, a text-based configuration file can be more help. There is an initiative to support this, with the Jenkins Pipeline plugin.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use Jenkins for pretty much everything. We build and test every merge request in the company, so the code reviewer can immediately see the compilation/static analysis/test results etc. We also use it for continuous delivery, as we deploy user test releases with Jenkins, sometimes manually, sometimes in nightly builds.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
I would recommend Jenkins, because all the CI problems can be solved with it, and the new Jenkins 2.0 version will be even better.

Jenkins come to work all along

  • April 12, 2016

What do you like best?
Easy Learning Curve, Better Integration with Products, A plugin based system which helps developers add more support similar to eclipse plugins.
What do you dislike?
Not all added plugins are useful. Similar to Apple App Stores plugins should be rated according to their download & ratings should be given.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Running Automation Testing on Jenkins, Continuous Integration and Deployment. Devops can be easily realized.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
As said earlier, Plugins can be rated and no. of downloads can be stated.

What do you dislike?
Initial setup and configuration is tricky, takes lots of efforts.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fantastic CI Solution for On-Premise and the Cloud

  • April 02, 2016
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The best thing about Jenkins is its ease of use and the broad availability of plugins. The system connects to virtually anything out there today and can operate phenomenally integrating with both on-premise and cloud resources like AWS (I used it for Elastic Beanstalk in particular).
What do you dislike?
The interface is absolutely terrible. They are supposedly working on an improved version at CloudBees, but until then, it definitely looks like an admin tool written by admins; spartan.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I needed a solution that would allow for us to build applications based on specific code branches, perform unit tests, code coverage and security scans, UX tests, initiate penetration tests for specific tiers and deploy the applications to both on-premise and cloud environments. All of these were possible with Jenkins with little to no advanced knowledge all using out of the box functionality. This allowed my teams to go from performing most of these steps manually to performing them in a completely automated state within a matter of days.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Take the time to plan out your permissions models and install the roles strategy plugin from the get go. Enable SSO via an SSO provider on-premise or in the cloud (Okta works well wth the SAML plugin), install the folders plugin to help organize your projects and then explore the Promoted Builds plugin. Depending on where you're planning on deploying too, there may be plugins to help, such as the AWSEB Deployment plugin.
