Jenkins Pros and Cons

Jenkins Pros

KT
Software Engineering Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
The auto-schedule feature is valuable. Another valuable feature is that Jenkins does not trigger a build when there is no change in any of the systems. Jenkins also supports most of the open-source plug-ins.

It is open source, flexible, scalable, and easy to use. It is easy to maintain for the administrator. It is a continuous integration tool, and its enterprise version is quite mature. It has good integrations and plug-ins. Azure DevOps can also be integrated with Jenkins.

Jenkins Cons

KT
Software Engineering Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
There are a lot of things that they can try to improvise. They can reduce a lot of configurations. It is currently supporting Groovy for scripting. It would be really good if it can be improvised for Python because, for most of the automation, we have Python as a script. It would be good if can also support Python. We have a lot of Android builds. These Android builds can be a part of Jenkins. It can have some plug-ins or configurations for Android builds. There should also be some internal matrix to check the performance. We also want to have more REST API support, which is currently not much in Jenkins. We are not able to get more information about running Jenkins. More REST API support should be provided.

Its schedule builds need improvement. It should have scheduling features in the platform rather than using external plug-ins.

I think an integrated help button, that respected the context of the change/work in hand, would be a worthwhile improvement.
