About this book
Jenkins is a renowned name among build and release CI/CD DevOps engineers because of its usefulness in automating builds, releases, and even operations. Despite its capabilities and popularity, it's not easy to scale Jenkins in a production environment. The Jenkins Administrator's Guide will not only teach you how to set up a production-grade Jenkins instance from scratch but also cover management and scaling strategies.
This book will guide you through steps for setting up a Jenkins instance on AWS and inside a corporate firewall, while discussing the design choices on the configuration options such as TLS termination point and security policies. You’ll create CI/CD pipelines that are triggered through GitHub pull request events, and also understand the various Jenkinsfile syntax types to help you develop a build and release process unique to your requirements. For readers who are new to Amazon Web Services, the book has a dedicated chapter on AWS with screenshots. You’ll also get to grips with Jenkins Configuration as Code, disaster recovery, upgrading plans, removing bottlenecks, advanced administration, and more to help you manage and scale your Jenkins instance.
By the end of this book, you’ll not only have a production-grade Jenkins instance with CI/CD pipelines in place, but also knowledge of best practices by industry experts.
