Our options are:

  • Install Jenkins via Docker
  • Install Jenkins on Linux
  • Install Jenkings on Windows

Download Jenkins for Docker

docker pull jenkins/jenkins

Download Jenkins for Centos

sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/jenkins.repo sudo rpm --import

yum install jenkins

Download Jenkins for Window


We, of course, will install Jenkins for Centos; Jenkins own instructions are available at

docker pull jenkinsci/blueocean

docker run \
  -u root \
  --rm \
  -d \
  -p 8080:8080 \
  -p 50000:50000 \
  -v jenkins-data:/var/jenkins_home \
  -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \

Post Install

$ cat /var/lib/docker/volumes/jenkins-data/_data/secrets/initialAdminPassword

Save the output

Go to http://localhost:8080

Enter the saved password and then “Continue”

I then installed the suggested plugins.
