Jenkins isn’t a build server, it’s an automation server – everything you need for CI/CD pipelines all comes from plugins. It’s time to learn how to use plugins effectively: minimize dependencies, manage security updates, and build your own plugin.
Plugins extend every part of Jenkins, and there are over 1,500 plugins which add all sorts of features – building test reports, sending chat notifications, deploying to production platforms, and even configuring Jenkins itself. Plugins are regularly updated with new features and security patches, but you need to be aware that updates can cause failures. In this course, Using and Managing Jenkins Plugins, you’ll learn techniques to get the most out of Jenkins plugins. First, you’ll find out how the plugin model works in Jenkins. Then, you’ll explore how to discover, install, and use plugins – both in freestyle and pipeline jobs. Next, you’ll see how easy it is to build a custom plugin and extend Jenkins with your own features. Finally, you’ll gain an understanding on how to safely manage your plugins. When you’re finished with the course, you’ll be able to put plugins to work and keep all of your jobs running smoothly.
