Both companies are well-known for their popular open source IT automation platforms. The integration gives DevOps and operations personnel the ability to use Jenkins for the first time to trace application code changes from development through to deployment, and into production.
The announcement brings together the most popular continuous integration server, Jenkins CI, with the most popular infrastructure orchestration platforms from Chef and Puppet to provide the highest levels of traceability available. The integration solves one of the chief challenges DevOps teams face in the changing world of software development.
Previously, Jenkins tracked program files and packages that flow through it via a mechanism called 'fingerprinting.' However, when these files move outside of Jenkins, as is the case when Chef or Puppet deploys them, Jenkins can no longer track them. The new integration, developed by CloudBees and in collaboration with development teams from both Chef and Puppet, fills this gap and provides DevOps teams with complete traceability. DevOps personnel can now rely on Jenkins to trace not only which version of a change is running and where it is running, but also when it was deployed and what tests were run against it. All of this can occur even in complex and asynchronous environments. This added traceability allows further process automation within Jenkins and extends continuous delivery even further than before.
'A need for automation has been driving our industry and traceability is a key enabler of automation,' said
To provide this additional layer of visibility, CloudBees is making available a new Deployment Notification plugin for both open source Jenkins CI and the CloudBees continuous delivery platform. This functionality is available no matter where enterprise teams are working - on-premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment.
