Jenkins does not readily expose the full CI pipeline progress & outcome
As a reviewer of a given branch, I’m supposed to check the results of 3
different Jenkins jobs. There’s no single place that shows me this
information: I need to separately check 3 different jobs.
As a developer of a branch, I’m also supposed to check whether the full CI pipeline passed, before I submit my MR. For this I need to track progress of the full pipeline until it has finished running. Currently this means having 3 extra tabs open in my web browser.
I believe that Jenkins pipelines solve this UX problem, but this would
imply to rework how we generate jobs.
GitLab CI is not affected by this problem.
