Jenkins is an automation server often used for automating Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery pipelines. Follow this tutorial to install Jenkins on Ubuntu.

Installing Jenkins via a Debian package is remarkably simple. Run the following steps in your terminal:

First, add the Jenkins repository key to your system:

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Second, add the repository in your apt configuration:

echo "deb binary/" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

Finally, update your package definitions and install Jenkins:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jenkins

Finish the installation with your web browser. If you installed Jenkins locally on your workstation, try http://localhost:8080.

Alternatively, you can run Jenkins inside a Docker container.
