CumulusCI vs Jenkins: What are the differences?

Developers describe CumulusCI as "Python framework for building portable automation for Salesforce projects". CumulusCI was built to solve common challenges faced during the development and release of Salesforce managed package projects. On the other hand, Jenkins is detailed as "An extendable open source continuous integration server". In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.

CumulusCI and Jenkins can be primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" tools.

Some of the features offered by CumulusCI are:

  • Build sophisticated orgs with automatic installation of dependencies
  • Load and capture sample datasets to make your orgs feel real
  • Apply transformations to existing metadata to tailor orgs to your specific requirements

On the other hand, Jenkins provides the following key features:

  • Easy installation
  • Easy configuration
