“Jenkins is mainly used for setting up automated software builds and building CI/CD pipelines in a software development organization. However, it can also be used as a general-purpose DevOps automation platform where various automation, provisioning, and system maintenance tasks can be hosted and orchestrated.

When you spin up an AWS EC2 node from this Jenkins Server AMI, Jenkins Automation Server is up and running, and fully functional. It also comes with additional tools commonly found in a DevOps toolchain that are needed to roll out various automation projects. They include:

Major Jenkins plugins
Compilers Open JDK 8 and C/C++
Python 2.7 and 3.x
Ansible
Node.js
AWS CLI
kubectl
Maven
Gradle
Git Client
At the same time, the Jenkins setup is not altered from official installation guidelines so you don’t need to deal with a custom Jenkins setup for building on the baseline platform provided by this AMI.”
