The Jenkins community defines a Jenkins "project" as a user configured description of the work that Jenkins should perform; and a "build" as a single execution of a project. This course provides a hands-on, step-by-step opportunity to create a very basic Jenkins project and use key components of the Jenkins server toolset to perform a build in support of that project.
Along the way, you will learn to use the Jenkins automation server to establish builds with parameters, advanced triggers, SCM integration, multiple build steps, artifacts, and several other specialized functions. By the end of the course, you'll know how to customize and automate project builds to meet the specialized needs for building application source code as part of an automated deployment pipeline.
- Discover the difference between a Jenkins project and a Jenkins build
- Gain experience integrating a project with the Git source code repository
- Learn how to schedule builds, conduct remote builds, and trigger builds
- Understand how to discard old builds and disable projects
- Explore ways to control project security, control build steps, and perform post-build actions
