How to configure Jenkins for continuous integration and continuous delivery?

1. Install Jenkins on your server

Download and install the latest version of Jenkins from the official website or use the package manager of your operating system.

2. Open Jenkins

Once installed, open your web browser and navigate to http://localhost:8080 or the specific location where Jenkins is running.

3. Set up Jenkins

During the first run, Jenkins will ask for a password. Retrieve the password by checking the location specified in the installation documentation and provide it.

4. Install recommended plugins

After Jenkins is successfully installed, it will prompt you to install the recommended plugins. Choose the "Install suggested plugins" option to let Jenkins install the necessary plugins for continuous integration and delivery.

5. Create a new job

Once the plugins are installed, you will be redirected to the Jenkins homepage. Click on "New Item" to create a new job.

6. Configure the job

Provide a name for the job and choose the type of job you want to create (e.g., Freestyle project or Pipeline).

7. Configure source code management

In the job configuration page, under the Source Code Management section, select your version control system (e.g., Git, SVN) and provide the necessary credentials and repository details.

8. Configure build triggers

In the Build Triggers section, select the trigger option that suits your requirements. For continuous integration, you can choose to build periodically, when changes are pushed to the repository, or when specific events occur.

9. Configure the build process

In the Build section, define the build steps that need to be executed. This can include compiling code, running tests, and packaging the application.

10. Configure post-build actions

In the Post-build Actions section, define actions to be executed after the build, such as archiving artifacts, triggering other builds, or deploying the application.

11. Save the job configuration

Once all the necessary configurations are set, click on "Save" to save the job configuration.

12. Trigger the job

To initiate a build, go to the Jenkins homepage and click on the job you created. Click on "Build Now" to manually trigger the build, or let the configured triggers automatically initiate a build when the conditions are met.

13. Monitor the build

Monitor the build progress on the job page. Jenkins will display the build output and results.

By following these steps, you can configure Jenkins for continuous integration and continuous delivery, allowing you to automate the build, test, and deployment processes of your software projects.
