Leverage the Power of Automation with Jenkins on Windows Server
Jenkins is a self-contained open source automation server you and your team can use to automate a variety of different tasks. Jenkins is a cornerstone of many continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) process flows. Jenkins allows you to automate software builds, tests, and deployments and features a powerful array of plugins to expand the system's capabilities. In this lab you will learn how to install and configure a stand-alone Jenkins web server on Windows Server 2016. You will also add some plugins and create your first example jobs.
Upon completion of this lab you will be able to:
- Connect to an EC2 instance on Amazon Web Services (AWS)
- Install and configure a Jenkins server
- Add plugins and create Jenkins jobs
- Run Jenkins jobs and examine outputs and results
You should be familiar with:
- Basic understanding of local operating system and computer use
- Remote Desktop (RDP) connection methods
- Software installation and configuration
After completing the lab instructions the environment should look similar to:
January 10th, 2019 - Added a validation Lab Step to check the work you perform in the Lab
December 3rd, 2018 - Updated Windows Server 2016 AMI to avoid issues with Lab startup
