Some great features but a poor user interface and user experience

  • May 04, 2015
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
i like the capabilities it has of running concurrent builds, allowing custom views, and integrations with popular 3rd party applications like hipchat, etc via plugins
What do you dislike?
the upgrade process is painful. every time we try to upgrade jenkins and/or plugins, things end up hanging and we have to kill various processes and it's never straightforward. the user interface is also hideous. it's like a UI from 1992. awful. the user experience is also painful. there's so many clicks to get to things and it's not intuitive on how to get to other things. i can't seem to figure out how to rearrange the ordering of views on the dashboard, for example. i'd like to access private views easily vs shared views.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
we have multiple projects with multiple deployment tiers for each (e.g, dev and test) and we need projects to automatically kick off being built at certain tiers when checkins happen. it's been very beneficial to have things automated from a CI perspective using jenkins. we can see immediately what things are breaking the build so people can fix them/address them as they are notified in real-time in hipchat and emails. no lags is key.

Jenkins is a great product for CICD

  • May 01, 2015
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Configuration is pretty straight forward. Very fast to navigate. CICD feature is pretty cool. Its very cool that with a single click it controls the complete build and deployment flow.
What do you dislike?
UI could be little better. More open source could be available.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
To perform build and deployment to the server. Should help to customize more for the corporate needs.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Ease of use

Good way for monitoring

  • August 06, 2014
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I have been using Jenkins since a year now. It is very helpful for the organization as it helps to monitor the activities and the bugs on day basis.
It also helps the whole organization to know what is going around in the team and the percentage of Fails - to - Pass ratios for the tests/cases you have. It can be used in the perspective for Unit Testing, Regression, End-to-End Testing and for continuous improvement and integration process.
What do you dislike?
It might be sometimes confusing on how to use and configure and setting up the parameters
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am currently working in the Quality Department and it is very important to monitor the issues on continuous basis. Hence I feel Jenkins is the excellent tool for that purpose. It is very helpful not only in monitoring but also notifies you if you forget to monitor any issues

Complex but effective build and deploy tool

  • June 06, 2014
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
This is a powerful tool out of the box. Several VCS are natively supported, including SVN and git, both of which I use regularly. The ability to monitor branches for changes enables true continuous automation. Excellent Maven and Java support overall makes Enterprise Java build and deployment a breeze. An active community has built an impressive catalog of plugins, adding support for an even more diverse or highly specific set of project requirements. Easy environment management for each job makes it simple to prepare and execute the most complex of builds and deploys. Additionally, as it supports regular job execution, Jenkins is a superior alternative to cron, adding a useful interface, support for arbitrary shell scripts, log retention, job health tracking and email notifications, to name a few features. There is a lot to like about Jenkins.
What do you dislike?
Upgrades can be painful. Often plugins will break catastrophically after a Jenkins update, and it can take some time to restore functionality. We have found most success with pinning to a stable version, and planning updates well in advance. Speed can also be an issue - although the system as a whole is stable, Jenkins is unlikely to win any races. Given its broad set of great features, these deficiencies have been remarkably easy to overlook.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We have a very diverse constellation of projects in languages spanning Ruby, Python, and Java, to name a few, with applications running behind Apache, JBoss, Tomcat, Mule, and others. Jenkins manages all our builds, is a critical component in our QA proceas, automatically triggering our test suites and passing the results to our developers and QA engineers. In addition to handling all builds and deployments across all projects and environments, we use Jenkins to administer load balance membership in our cloud infrastructure. This is a small example of our use cases. Jenkins is a valuable member of our development life cycle, and has saved us countless work-hours.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Take into account its full feature list and low adoption cost. This is an incredibly powerful tool, but you will need to identify a stakeholder initially to invest time in learning how it works for it to become a truly integral part of your software development life cycle.

Ok Build Tool. Lots of Plugins = Lots of Configuration

  • May 15, 2014
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Simple build tool that integrates with Artificatory and Maven. We have been able to use Jenkins to deploy on a nightly basis to our Hadoop cluster.
What do you dislike?
Lots of plugins. Lots of documentation which is sometimes difficult to go through.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Build and deploy process. Once we were able to get it to work it does 100% of the time. Took alot of tweaking. Getting nightly builds to our QA environment has helped us solve CI issues that have allowed us to fix issues quicker.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Lots of build for many teams means lots of maintenance. Consider setting up one jenkins build machine per team.
