With views and folders, Jenkins helps you find jobs quickly and keeps your jobs organized. In this lesson, discover how views and folders differ and the benefits of using both.
- [Instructor] I've got a scenario for you.…You're working with some mobile app developers,…and they are making apps for every team…in a basketball little league.…The developers have asked you to set up jobs…on a Jenkins server that will build, test,…and deploy the mobile apps.…As you start creating the jobs,…you realize that you'll soon end up…with more than 100 jobs running on your Jenkins server.…With so many jobs to sort through,…you and the developers might have trouble finding the jobs…that you need to work on.…Fortunately, Jenkins has functionality for organizing jobs…in particular views and folders.…
Let's discuss what views and folders are,…and how they can help.…Views provide a way of associating jobs on the dashboard…and displaying them together.…You can think of a view as a type of filter that looks…at all the defining jobs and displays particular ones based…on some criteria that you define.…Views let you limit the jobs you see to only the job…that you might be interested in.…Folders allow you to create structures that are very similar…
First, learn how to set up Jenkins on Mac, Windows, Linux, or inside a Docker container, and find out how Jenkins plugins are used to extend its functionality. Next, configure your first job step by step, leading up to the requisite "Hello, World" output, and learn to make your jobs more useful and portable with parameters. Then explore job scheduling, and Jenkins's convenient aliases for running jobs at regular intervals. The course wraps up with tips for organizing jobs in folders and views and a brief look into pipelines as code-which enable you to execute a series of jobs in stages.
By the end of the training, you should be able to install Jenkins locally or on a virtual machine, create a Jenkins jobs that can be triggered manually or on a schedule, and install and configure plugins to extend the Jenkins framework.
