Hi All, this document deals how to Setup build a pipeline in Jenkins. Jenkins is one of the best Continous Integration and Continous delivery tool used by DevOps.
Using Pipeline you can have many jobs to run as single and provide you a detail report on this.

Jenkins is an open source automation server written in Java. Jenkins helps to automate the non-human part of the software development process, with continuous integration and facilitating technical aspects of continuous delivery. It is a server-based system that runs in servlet containers such as Apache Tomcat.
In this document, I will be creating 3 sample jobs and chaining all these jobs to start one job after other. Here I will be using a Build Pipeline to perform this action.

Once you Installed Jenkins server, here are the steps to do job chaining in Jenkins.

Step 3: Now I will create the second job in the same way, but in this job you have to add a build trigger – Build after other projects are built and select your first Job.
In Build I’m just print a line using Execute shell.

Step 4: Now the final Job 3 I’m creating the same way how Job 2 is created. In build Trigger, this job will Execute after Job 2.

Step 5: Now Goto your Jenkins dashboard, you can see all the 3 jobs which created before.

Step 6: Now click on the + button and select Build Pipeline View.
