Jenkins Review

Nice functionality, but does not have a very user-friendly interface

How has it helped my organization?

We used it for all continuous integration parts, like automation testing, deployment, etc.

What is most valuable?

In Jenkins v.2, the most useful feature is the Pipeline plugin. The reason why I think so is that you can build your own workflow with Groove and the plugin has many useful features like parallel executing, running commands, etc. and even imagine implementing your own features on Groove.

What needs improvement?

The interface.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Yes, in Jenkins v.2. However, I am guessing that is because we used it right after the first release.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In my opinion, there is an issue with the scalability. After Jenkins has big count of jobs, it begins to lose performance and you need to start one more server with a separate Jenkins and migrate some jobs there.

How is customer service and technical support?

It was enough for me.

Which solutions did we use previously?

No, I did not.

How was the initial setup?

As I remember, there was just one command on Linux. Pretty easy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is free.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I didn't choose, but in my opinion, this is the best open source solution for CI and CD.

What other advice do I have?

Nice functionality, but does not have a very user-friendly interface.
