A network configuration that prevents network-connected resources, such as computers or processes, to behave as if they are physically isolated from unsecured networks, such as the public internet or an unsecured local area network.
A computer that handles the tasks of running builds at the direction of a controller. Within the context of a CloudBees CI cluster, a build agent can be a shared resource for connected client controllers (for CloudBees CI on traditional platforms), or managed controllers, and team controllers (for CloudBees CI on modern cloud platforms).
Jenkins® is an open source automation server. With Jenkins, organizations can accelerate the software development process by automating it. Jenkins manages and controls software delivery processes throughout the entire lifecycle, including build, document, test, package, stage, deployment, static code analysis and much more.
A node is an operating system or container running Jenkins as an agent. Most work a Pipeline performs is done in the context of one or more declared node steps. Confining the work inside of a node step does two things:
A component of CloudBees CI that enables centralized management of managed controllers and team controllers (for CloudBees CI on modern cloud platforms), and client controllers (for CloudBees CI on traditional platforms).
In CloudBees CI and CloudBees Jenkins Platform, a Jenkins Pipeline is a suite of plugins which supports implementing and
integrating continuous delivery pipelines into Jenkins. Pipeline provides an
extensible set of tools for modeling simple-to-complex delivery pipelines "as
code" via the Pipeline DSL.
CloudBees Pipeline Templates give your organization the ability to enforce consistency. A small team can determine what Pipeline options are appropriate for your needs, and all of your development teams can choose from one of those options when they set up a software delivery project.
A stage is a step for defining a conceptually distinct subset of the entire Pipeline, for example: "Build", "Test", and "Deploy". A stage is used by many plugins to visualize or present Jenkins Pipeline status/progress.
