Jenkins CI/CD Integration

The Jenkins app ingests data using Fluent Bit, similar to the Host Monitoring Integration, as well as the Jenkins Statistics Gatherer plugin.

Observe helps you monitor the activity and health of your Jenkins pipeline with datasets that include information about your Jenkins jobs, builds, build logs, nodes, agents, and more.

Setup

The Jenkins App ingests data using Fluent Bit, similar to the Host Monitoring Integration/App, as well as the Jenkins Statistics Gatherer plugin. To install and configure data collection, see the Jenkins installation guide.

As Observe ingests this data, these out-of-the-box datasets and boards display information about your Jenkins pipeline.
