Tutorial: Install a Jenkins server on IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service and deploy an app

Looking to deploy your favorite application using Jenkins running on IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service? The Jenkins Helm community chart enables you to install and configure a Jenkins server on a cluster.

The IBM Hybrid Cloud Team has authored a tutorial that will guide you through the steps required to set up and install a Jenkins server and deploy a sample Node and React application on IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.

Check out the tutorial: Container Managed Tool – Jenkins


Jenkins® is an open source automation server. With Jenkins, organizations can accelerate and automate the software development process. Jenkins manages and controls software delivery processes throughout the entire lifecycle, including build, document, test, package, stage, deployment, static code analysis, and much more.

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

We recommend deploying Jenkins and the sample application by using the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, which provides a native Kubernetes experience. Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. The IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is highly secure, easy to use, and fully manages your Kubernetes clusters, allowing the developer to focus on the fun stuff—building applications.
