Migrating Jenkins Freestyle Job to Multibranch Pipeline

Anyone who recently started working on Jenkins, or started within the past few years, would by default go with creating pipelines for their CI/CD workflow. There is a parallel world, people who have been using Jenkins from its inception, who didn’t get on a foot race with new Jenkins features and stayed very loyal to ‘Freestyle jobs.’ Don’t get me wrong, Freestyle job does the work, can be efficient and a simple solution if you have a 1-dimensional branching structure in your source control. In this post, I would discuss why switching to Multibranch Pipeline was needed for one of our enterprise customers and how it has made their life easy.

Freestyle vs. Pipeline Jobs

Freestyle jobs are suitable for simple CI/CD workflow accompanied by a simple branching strategy. If you have multiple stages in your CI/CD design, then it’s not the right fit. That’s where the Pipeline enters.

A Pipeline job is an aggregation of all the stages or steps (build, test and deploy, etc) as one unit, comprising multiple stages, which are by default run in sequential order but can be run in parallel as well. All these steps can be defined in a file as code, called Jenkinsfile via Pipeline Domain-Specific Language (DSL). This file can be committed to Git, this is a step towards attaining CI/CD-as-Code. You can know more about Pipelines and how to write Jenkinsfile in its documentation, Jenkins Pipeline.

What are the benefits of cloud migration? Reasons you should migrate

The moving of applications, databases and other business elements from the local server to the cloud server called cloud migration. This article will deal with migration techniques, requirement and the benefits of cloud migration.

In simple terms, moving from local to the public cloud server is called cloud migration. Gartner says 17.5% revenue growth as promised in cloud migration and also has a forecast for 2022 as shown in the following image.

Jenkins — How Can We Get Started Jobs in Jenkins (Part 3)

In the previous article, we learned how to create Users + Manage + Assign Roles in Jenkins. In this article, I will be highlighting how can we create some basic JOBS in Jenkins. Furthermore, these are the points which I am going to explain.

  • How to create a basic Job in Jenkins.
  • Basic Job Configurations.
  • How to run the Job remotely.
  • How to chain Job Execution

How to create a basic Job in Jenkins?

First of all **click **on New Item on the Jenkins Dashboard. Then Give a name to your project. Then you can select a **Freestyle **or **Multi-configuration **project. For this tutorial please go with the Freestyle project. Then click on the **Okay **button.

As soon as you complete these simple steps you will be taken to the **configuration **window. Here you can provide different details about Jobs. There are 5 sections available. **General, Source Code Management, Build Triggers, Build, **and Post-build Actions.

General Section

Here you can provide a quick description of your project or Job. You can preview it also. You can also use HTML tags inside the description.

Source Code Management Section

So here in case you want to take the build from any source code system like Git, Bitbucket, or any other source code management portals. We need to add plugins to those source code repositories. But in the coming tutorials, we will see how exactly we can get our build and trigger our Job from a source code management system.

Jenkins Is Getting Old — It’s Time to Move On

By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. As so many developers are using it, it has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. With that, it has more than 1,500 plugins available for continuous integration and delivery purposes.

We love and respect Jenkins. After all, it’s the first tool we encountered at the beginning of our automation careers. But as things are rapidly changing in the automation field, Jenkins is** left behind with his old approach**. Even though many developers and companies are using it, most of them aren’t happy with it. Having used it ourselves on previous projects, we quickly became frustrated by its lack of functionality, numerous maintenance issues, dependencies, and scaling problems.

We decided to investigate if other developers face the same problems and quickly saw the need to create a tool ourselves. We asked some developers at last year’s AWS Summit in Berlin about this. Most of them told us that they chose Jenkins because it’s free in the first place. However, many of them expressed interest in trying to use some other Jenkins alternative.
