How is Jenkins used in Ubuntu?

Jenkins is a popular open-source continuous integration tool used for automating the building, testing, and deployment of software projects. To install and configure Jenkins in Ubuntu, you can follow these steps:

  1. Firstly, update the apt software package index and install the OpenJDK Java Runtime Environment.
sudo apt update
sudo apt install openjdk-8-jre
  1. Next, add the GPG key of the Jenkins software repository and add it to the apt software package manager.
wget -q -O - https://pkg.jenkins.io/debian/jenkins.io.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo deb http://pkg.jenkins.io/debian-stable binary/ > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jenkins.list'
  1. Now, update the apt software package index and install Jenkins.
sudo apt update
sudo apt install jenkins
  1. Start the Jenkins service and configure it to start automatically.
sudo systemctl start jenkins
sudo systemctl enable jenkins
  1. Open the browser and visit http://localhost:8080 (make sure to open port 8080 if using a firewall), follow the on-screen instructions to complete the Jenkins configuration.

Once installation and configuration are complete, you can create new Jenkins tasks, set build triggers, configure build steps, and more. With Jenkins, you can achieve continuous integration and continuous delivery, helping teams manage and deliver software projects more effectively.
