Build platforms, like Jenkins and Bamboo, enable a continuous integration practice that allows application delivery teams—including developers, DevOps practitioners, QA, and release engineering—to build artifacts, trigger new builds and environments, automate tests, and more. It can be used to help remediate build or test bottlenecks and increase the application delivery velocity and quality. Build systems data show the health of a build environment, the status of tests, insights into stack traces and build queues.
When your Splunk deployment is ingesting build systems data, you can use it to accomplish application delivery and DevOps use cases such as:
Guidance for onboarding data can be found in the Spunk Documentation, Getting Data In (Splunk Enterprise) or Getting Data In (Splunk Cloud). In addition, these Splunk Add-Ons and Apps are helpful for working with build systems data.
