Jenkins is primarily employed for establishing automated software builds and creating CI/CD pipelines within a software development organization. Nonetheless, it can also serve as a versatile DevOps automation platform capable of hosting and orchestrating a variety of automation, provisioning, and system maintenance tasks.

When you launch an AWS EC2 instance from the Jenkins Server AMI, the Jenkins Automation Server becomes operational and fully functional. It also includes supplementary tools commonly found in a DevOps toolchain that are essential for implementing diverse automation projects. These tools encompass:

Major Jenkins plugins
Open JDK 8 and C/C++ compilers
Python 2.7 and 3.x
Ansible
Node.js
AWS CLI
kubectl
Maven
Gradle
Git Client
Furthermore, it’s important to note that the Jenkins setup remains consistent with the official installation guidelines. Therefore, there is no need to customize the Jenkins configuration when building on the foundation provided by this AMI.
