If you are using Jenkins to orchestrate application releases, at any point in time, there would be a series of freestyle jobs chained together based on specific criteria to perform builds. To convert these freestyle jobs to pipeline, DevOps engineers will have to manually drill down to each of the 100s or 1000s of jobs, understand the tools, configurations, URLs, and parameters etc. and re-write those in pipeline syntax. This manual effort not only involves converting individual job logic but also requires to ensure that the chain is converted to a single pipeline while keeping a base-rule of 1 chain = 1 pipeline. However, as the number of jobs increases, it becomes extremely difficult to convert the freestyle jobs to coded pipelines.

Infostretch has created a plugin that drastically reduces the effort behind this manual process. Now, DevOps engineers can auto-generate the script for this conversion. The plugin ensures adherence to coding standards, separates complex business logic and standard declaration from execution flow declaration and accelerates the transition process of any new set of applications being on-boarded to pipeline.

Join our 15-minute presentation and demo by Sanil Pillai, Director of Infostretch Labs to:

  • Learn how the plugin can be used to enforce coding standards in your applications

  • Understand how auto-generated scripts can be pre-configured to use custom libraries

  • View a live demo of the plugin auto-converting freestyle Jenkins jobs to coded pipeline
