Build Applications That Unlock All Of Your Developer Potential

Cloud Native CI/CD is an opinionated CI/CD solution, purpose-built for Kubernetes. With Jenkins X, you can harness the power of Kubernetes without its complexity to deliver cloud-native apps quickly. Your team can focus on better CI/CD workflows instead of cluster management, namespaces or technical overhead.

Read the Datasheet

Automate the entire CI/CD pipeline in one place

Leverage Kubernetes to create identical environments and promote changes through them, while ensuring parity and making rollbacks simple.

  • Pipelines are declarative (YAML)

  • Each stage runs on its own ephemeral pod

  • Dozens of pre-configured buildpacks and quickstarts for popular languages

  • Pre-define pipelines for many scenarios using DevOps best practices

  • Scale apps based on actual usage, scale down when not used with serverless deployments

GitOps baked in

Manage the configuration and version of the Kubernetes apps deployed to your Jenkins X environments through a dedicated Git repo. Every change to your application is tested and deployed by Jenkins X using GitOps.

  • Source control is the “single source of truth"

  • Environment changes made via pull request trigger pipelines to execute changes

  • Test and collaborate on changes transparently

  • Rollback and recover easily from disaster

  • Instantly audit-ready

Reduce branches like a boss

Automatically spin up ready-made preview environments for every pull request. The preview environment enables your whole team, other developers or a designer to provide feedback on your changes faster, get the pull request merged and eliminate the feature branch.

  • A link to a preview environment is automatically posted to all pull requests

  • Auto-merge to master when pull requests are approved, without leaving Jenkins X with ChatOps

  • Environment promotion makes it easy to get work over the finish line

Key Features

Preview environments

As soon as you open the pull request, Jenkins X not only creates the automatic preview environment, but also instantly posts its URL to your pull request


Manage your workflow directly from Git issue comments - no need to leave your current workflow for approvals or to rerun a build

Serverless deployments with Knative

Scale your app up or down based on demand

Jenkins vs. Jenkins X: How to Scale and Accelerate CI/CD

"I can honestly say that Jenkins X is transforming the DevOps culture at Blackboard. We can launch a new project within days instead of months. We can roll out releases and bug fixes faster than ever before, and we have moved engineers away from repetitive setup and support roles to creative development roles, thus improving productivity and employee satisfaction."

Open Source at Heart

Jenkins X is an independent open source project within the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF). Jenkins X was born at CloudBees and donated to the CDF in March 2019. Jenkins X is built with, uses and integrates with the best of the open source ecosystem.

  • Built on Kubernetes for Kubernetes applications

  • Tekton pipelines

  • Helm for auto-packaging apps

  • Skaffold for deployment

  • Terraform for infrastructure as code

  • Whitesource for license compliance management

  • And more...

Jenkins X is Jenkins’ Spiritual Counterpart for the World of Cloud Native CI/CD

The concept of pipelines and extensibility is what they have in common.  That is it!

  • Zero code from Jenkins project

  • Entirely different architecture

  • Solving different problems, in different ways
