Background: Our team needed to have enough flexibility to be able to write everything in code. We also needed to have IDE support and to test the solution as a project. More importantly, we sought to make use of the entire existing ecosystem already built around Jenkins.
Goals: Providing pipelines for everybody without the need to code.
Solution & Results: In addition to Jenkins Pipelines, we turned to Matrix Authorization Plugin, Kubernetes Plugin, and Gradle for our key capabilities. Our solution was an A-Grade project with lots of abstraction and tight integration with our infrastructure provider. In doing so, we were able to automatically test the pipeline code with a minimal amount of clicks.
We achieved superior results with Jenkins Pipelines, including:
Jenkins is the way to make no-code pipelines possible.
