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 - https://pkg.jenkins.io/debian-stable/jenkins.io.key | sudo apt-key add -
Second, add the repository in your apt configuration:
echo "deb https://pkg.jenkins.io/debian-stable 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.
