Jenkins is not perfect, but it has best pipeline view plugins

  • January 08, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
- Ease of use
- Variety of plugins
- Rich plugin API
- Pipeline support (build pipeline, delivery pipeline)
- Job parameterization
What do you dislike?
- No job templates
- Poor plugin compatibility (if you have a working configuration with 100+ plugins you probably won't be able to upgrade without breaking anything)
- Performance issues (1000+ jobs)
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
- Build Java projects
- Build Kotlin projects
- Build Android projects
- Run automated tests
- Run performance tests
- Run static code analysis
- Produce various reports
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Jenkins has less support from core developers than commercial products.
However, it has large community and your problem will likely already have a solution if you use stable version of Jenkins and plugins.

Jenkins is an awesome tool when you know what you're doing.

  • January 04, 2016
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Very flexible CI tool which you can do almost everything with. You can customize almost every aspect of its work and make it perfect fit for your particular purposes.
What do you dislike?
Due to its flexibility it's very easy to make a mistake in configuration. So it requires some experience working with it. Second, as it's an open source project it's not very good optimized in terms of performance and requires pretty "beefy" hardware to run it in production.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We perform CI tasks and build automation for Java, iOS and Android projects on the daily basis.

Great ecosystem w/ lots of plugins

  • December 24, 2015

What do you like best?
Jenkins has the largest set of 3rd party tools for an open source project. It also has builds available for a lot of different platforms. The build environment lets you define setups easily and above all makes debugging them simple. Because it runs on OSX, you can do IOS builds as well as use Vagrant/Virtualbox to test out server builds.
What do you dislike?
Some of the web admin pages are bit quirky when you add plugins so you can't figure out where the sections for each plugin are. Connecting multiple Jenkins servers to the cluster is also a bit difficult. There's no simple way to tell it to test all your source code branches.

One other thing that's confusing is on OSX, there are multiple ways to install it...via homebrew or as a separate app, etc.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Jenkins was used to do build/testing automation testing. The build of each version of code was validated quickly every time someone checked in code because unit tests were also done on the build server. Server builds were validated on the server by using vagrant to build up a copy of the server from scratch and run unit tests against it.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Set Jenkins up on a separate virtualbox or docker machine so it's easy to move it to another system.

Great CI Tool

  • December 18, 2015
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I like Jenkins because it can fulfill any CI purpose desired. There are a ton of plugins available for download as well to tweak and customize your instance to your liking.

It is also open source software built on an entirely restful architecture.
What do you dislike?
I'm not a big fan of the UI.

TeamCity by Jetbrains has a very clean UI and is packed full of features right out of the box.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Continuous Integration is something every enterprise level business needs and this certainly addresses any needs related to CI.

The Build Tool for Today

  • December 18, 2015
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Anything is a job, everything is a job. Tons of plugins, just configure a few basic things, add some parameters and it runs. Very easy to hook to Github, other servers. It is very easy to run static code analysis tools like PMD and CheckStyle.

It can also run all your JUnits and publish the HTML reports and code coverage.
What do you dislike?
It be default does not have great security and requires the install and configuration of a lot of plugins to be really useful. It would be nice if there were some wizards and more templates to copy jobs from. These are minor, but would be great.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The tools is without equal, there are others and many more expensive tools. But this is the gold standard, you just have to setup a job and it runs itself. Great replacement for cron as well.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Try it on your pc, it's easy to download and install as it's a Java application. You can also install it and try it on OpenShift.

Once you try it and have it automatically build and deploy things from your github you will be hooked. So easy and saves you a step. Just commit something to your git repo and it builds.

use jenkins for all of my projects

  • December 18, 2015
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Web console is very easy to use, and is great for non-technical people
What do you dislike?
the deployment automation can be a bit tricky with ssh key management.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Automated clean builds of projects and deployments to our production environments. Repeatable builds with history of build logs.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Use the Jenkins plugins. Also have a test jenkins server that you can play around with various jenkins configurations/ new plugins.
