Background: We use Jenkins for CI/CD so developers and testers can work parallelly. Every night an automated system pulls the code added to the shared repository throughout the day and builds that code. The idea is quite similar to continuous integration, but since the code that was built at night was quite large, locating and fixing bugs was a real pain.
Goals: Creating a data warehousing solution for business users to analyze data and report creation purposes.
Solution & Results:
Due to the issues highlighted above, Citibank adopted continuous integration (CI). As a result, every commit made to the source code in the repository was built. If the build result shows that there is a bug in the code, then the developers only need to check that particular commit. This significantly reduced the time required to release new software.
Jenkins helped us in faster time-to-market. And QA is assured.
The key capabilities we relied on were GIT Jenkins Plugin for automated build creation from GIT. We also used the TestProject plugin for automated orchestration of test cases.
