Automating a project with a Jenkinsfile
This guide introduces more useful steps, common patterns, and demonstrates some
Jenkinsfile, which is checked into source control
provides a number of immediate benefits:
Code review/iteration on the Pipeline
Audit trail for the Pipeline
Single source of truth  for the Pipeline, which can be viewed and edited by multiple members of the project.
Pipeline supports two syntaxes, Declarative (introduced in
Pipeline 2.5) and Scripted Pipeline. Both of which support building continuous
delivery pipelines. Both may be used to define a Pipeline in either the web UI
or with a
Jenkinsfile, though it’s generally considered a best practice to
Jenkinsfile and check the file into the source control repository.
