Jenkins Valuable Features

Software Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
* Configuration management: It is so easy to configure a Jenkins instance. Migrate configuration to a new environment just by copying XML files and setting up new nodes. * Programmable pipelines: In recent versions, Jenkins has a Groovy Sandbox where build scripts execute. I have never seen that powerful a tool in CI solutions yet. On other platforms you can use shell scripts, but Jenkins' solution is much better in terms of readability and portability. And given that you can create your own libraries for the Jenkins Pipelines, it becomes much more powerful and DRYer, simplifying work of DevOps and build engineers. * Brand new Blue Ocean UI: Jenkins used to have a pretty outdated UI. Now, you can use the Blue Ocean plugin to make it nice, clean, and modern-looking. Also, it has very good integration with Pipelines (basically it is built to use Pipelines). View full review »

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.
