Jenkins is a powerful, open source automation tool with a large plugin ecosystem around it, providing tremendous extensibility. Jenkins enables DevOps teams to automate their software lifecycle and is used to power many companies’ software development pipelines.
Jenkins Pipeline offers:
- First-class features for managing complex, multi-step pipelines
- A set of open source plugins and integrations
- The power of Jenkins and the plugin ecosystem in a scriptable Domain Specific Language (DSL)
Best of all, like Jenkins core, Jenkins Pipeline is extensible by third-party developers, supporting custom extensions to the Pipeline DSL and various other options for plugin integration.
