The most valuable features of Jenkins are the ease of use and the information about how to use the features is readily available on the internet. Additionally, with the solution, I can use other reporting tools, such as Flow.

The most valuable features of Jenkins are creating builds, and connecting them with Sonar for Sonar analysis. Additionally, we connect it with other vulnerability tools, such as WhiteSource which is useful.

The simplicity of Jenkins and the evolving ecosystem of Jenkins are most valuable. Today, you do not have to write a pipeline from scratch. The library functionality of Jenkins helps you to bring all those in ready-made, and you also get the best practices for them. That is a great feature of Jenkins, and that is why it is being used significantly.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When you are evaluating tools for automating your own GitOps-based CI/CD workflow, it is important to keep your requirements and use cases in mind. Tekton deployment is complex and it is not very easy to use. In contrast, Jenkins is more manageable and user-friendly. Integrations and configurability with Tekton are excellent, while with Jenkins they are just ok. Tekton is a complete solution with full CI/CD GitOps workflow coverage while Jenkins includes opinionated CI/CD with additional automation features. Both are tuned for Kubernetes. Some of Jenkins’s most notable features include automated import of existing software projects, automatic project type detection (Go, Java, Python, etc.), automatic software environment creation, and automatic pipeline creation. When it comes to Kubernetes integrations, Jenkins is fully supported on EKS as well as GKE. In fact, Jenkins was designed for Kubernetes. I like Tekton because I think it is extremely powerful and allows you to customize entities which can then be reused or shared if needed. Tekton’s modularity also allows for componentization and standardization. With Tekton, it is especially helpful that tasks can be assembled or ordered in any way within pipelines. It is also very appealing to me that the initial installation of Tekton to your Kubernetes cluster only requires one command. Moreso, it is supported on Windows, Mac, and Linux. One thing to note though, is that Tekton involves a learning curve and it requires a solid understanding of CI/CD. Another thing I like about Tekton is its modular dashboard, which provides management and visibility features. However, additional configuration is necessary for that. Conclusion: I am convinced that Tekton is a better, more fit solution for managing my operational workflows. The reason being that Tekton has great flexibility and modularity, which makes it much easier for me to assemble complex pipelines instead of rewriting the building blocks each time.
