How to use Jenkins to automate my software delivery pipeline?

1. Install and set up Jenkins

Start by downloading and installing Jenkins on your local machine or server. Once installed, open your web browser and access the Jenkins interface.

2. Create a new Jenkins job

Click on "New Item" in the Jenkins dashboard, give your job a name, and select the type of job you want to create (e.g., Freestyle project, Pipeline, etc.).

3. Configure the job settings

Fill in the necessary details like the source code repository URL, build triggers, applicable build steps, post-build actions, and any other desired configurations.

4. Configure build triggers

You can set up various build triggers like polling SCM, triggering builds periodically, or configuring webhook notifications from your version control system to start the build process.

5. Configure build steps

Specify the necessary build steps required for your software delivery pipeline. These steps may include fetching source code from a version control system, compiling code, executing tests, generating build artifacts, etc.

6. Configure post-build actions

Define what should happen after the build is completed, whether it’s deploying the build artifacts to a test environment, triggering downstream jobs, sending notifications, or archiving build artifacts for future reference.

7. Save and apply the configuration

Once you have set up all the necessary configurations for your Jenkins job, save the changes.

8. Trigger the job

You can manually trigger the job, or it will automatically start based on the defined build triggers. Jenkins will clone the source code, execute the specified build steps, and perform post-build actions as configured.

9. Monitor and troubleshoot

During the automated software delivery pipeline process, Jenkins will display real-time information and logs. Monitor this information to track build progress and troubleshoot any potential issues.

10. Customize and expand

Jenkins provides a vast ecosystem of plugins and extensions. Explore and incorporate additional plugins to meet your specific needs or enhance your software delivery pipeline capabilities.‍
