Jenkins provides us with various interfaces and tools in order to automate the entires process.


1-We will create a GIT repository or use an existing one


2- Dev team have the responsibility to commits the code to dev_branch


3- Jenkins will fetch the codes from Github and will map with the jobs enabled for a specifics task


4- We will make sure that CI and CD is done for the job/tasks


5- Jenkins will pull the code and will enter the commits phases of the task


6-Jenkins then will compiles code and its called builds phases of the task


7-The code is deployed by Jenkins after the code will merging to the Master's branch by the DevOps team and the job will start for a specifics application


8-The code is ready to be deployed and enters the deployments phase cycle


9-The code afters deployed from Jenkins then get deployed to the servers using docker container


10-After the code is working fine in the staging server with unit testing, the Same code then is deployed on the production servers


With all the above 10 steps, Jenkins is responsible for the delivery phase with automating the deployments

Step 12: Again you will create a new job as before in the previous steps.


Step 13: Selects the freestyles projects and you provide the items name (here I have given Job3) and clicks on ok
