"Permission separations mean that we can grant limited permissions for each team or team member."
"This is a great integration tool and very powerful."
"The most valuable aspect of Jenkins is pipeline customization. Jenkins provides a declarative pipeline as well as a scripted pipeline. The scripted pipeline uses a programming language. You can customize it to your needs, so we use Jenkins because other solutions like Travis and Spinnaker don't allow much customization."
"Has enabled full automation of the company."
"It is easy to use."
"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."
"Very easy to understand for newcomers."
"Jenkins is very stable."
"Jenkins can be used for elastic management, if you have any sensitive data or credentials you can use them across the environment. Additionally, the solution is easy to use and can be used across multiple use cases."
"The documentation really should be improved by including real examples and more setup cases."
"Logging could be improved to offer a clearer view."
"It could be cheaper."
"Its schedule builds need improvement. It should have scheduling features in the platform rather than using external plug-ins."
"The solution could improve by having more advanced integrations."
"The scriptwriting process could be improved in this solution in the future."
