"The automation workflow in CircleCI related to third-party applications is very good and allows standardization of applications."
"We are using the open-source version and there is a lot of plugins and features that are available and it works on agents for free. In other solutions, it will cost extra to use them with the agent."
"I love Jenkins. I like that you work on anything, and you make anything. Jenkins is very important for my team. I am satisfied with the product."
"Jenkins is very easy to use."
"We can schedule anything with Jenkins, which is useful for deployment or anything that requires scheduling. It also has multiple plugins we can use for Maven, JUnit, etc."
"I like that you can find a wide range of plugins for Jenkins."
"Jenkins allows us to automate deployment, so I no longer have to do it manually. That's the primary use case. The other advantage of Jenkins is that it's open source. It was free for me to download and install. It's a product that's been in use for many years, so I can find a lot of support online for any issues that I may encounter while configuring anything for a given use case."
"The most valuable features of Jenkins are the integration of automatic scripts for testing and the user's ability to use any script."
"The auto-schedule feature is valuable. Another valuable feature is that Jenkins does not trigger a build when there is no change in any of the systems. Jenkins also supports most of the open-source plug-ins."
"There needs to be some improvement in the user interface of CircleCI."
"Jenkins takes a long time to create archive files."
"The enterprise version is less stable than the open-source version."
"This solution could be improved by removing the storage of unnecessary data such as the history of test deployments that were unsuccessful."
"Jenkins is an open-source solution, and people tend to stay on the same version for a long time. When you look for an answer on Google, you often find something that doesn't relate to your implementation. The plugins are both the aspect of Jenkins and also one of the worst because the plugins can have different versions, so it's hard to figure out how to solve the problems."
"It can be improved by including automated mobile reporting integrations."
"Some kind of SaaS product would be helpful in providing organizational structure."
"They need to improve their documentation."
"Jenkins is not an easy solution to use and the configuration is not simple. They can improve the solution by adding a graphical interface that is more user-friendly."
Jenkins is an award-winning application that monitors executions of repeated jobs, such as building a software project or jobs run by cron.
