CloudBees Jenkins Distribution administration guide


CloudBees Jenkins Distribution provides development teams with a highly dependable, secure Jenkins environment curated from the most recent supported Jenkins release. The distribution comes with a recommended catalog of tested plugins available through the CloudBees Assurance Program.

Upgrades are now a smooth, seamless experience with the Beekeeper Upgrade Assistant. The Beekeeper Upgrade Assistant works in parallel with the CloudBees Assurance Program to provide a centralized view of the monitored Jenkins plugins, as well as recommended actions and configuration options. The free CloudBees Jenkins Advisor plugin keeps an eye out for potential issues and recommendations and sends you email notifications with suggestions tailored to your installation.

CloudBees Jenkins Distribution considerably simplifies the installation and configuration process, and Configuration as Code makes the configuration of CloudBees Jenkins Distribution even easier. With Configuration as Code, you can turn complex configurations into easily-replicated, human-readable code files, and you can manage those configuration files with source control tools like GitHub.
