Welcome to your first Vl jenkins scenario!

You've completed your first Katacoda scenario!

Hello Jenkins Scenario

Step 1 - start jenkins

The environment has a Jenkins server running as a Docker Container. You can view the status using docker ps.

The command used to launch the container was:

docker run -d -u root --name jenkins \ -p 8080:8080 -p 50000:50000 \ -v /root/jenkins:/var/jenkins_home \ jenkins:1.651.1-alpine

All plugins and configurations get persisted to the host at /root/jenkins. Port 8080 opens the web dashboard, 50000 is used to communicate with other Jenkins agents. Finally, the image has an alpine base to reduce the size footprint.

Load Dashboard

You can load the Jenkins' dashboard via the following URL https://[[HOST_SUBDOMAIN]]-8080-[[KATACODA_HOST]].environments.katacoda.com/

In the next steps, you'll use the dashboard to configure the plugins and start building Docker Images.
