Octant the OSS web UI for Jenkins X

If you want an open source web UI for working with Jenkins X we highly recommend Octant along with the octant-jx plugin.

See the installation guide to get started.

Why Octant?

We love Octant because:

  • open source and very easy to extend with plugins in Go or TypeScript/JavaScript
  • lets you visualise and work with all kubernetes and custom resources across multiple clusters
  • thanks to octant-jx has awesome integration with Jenkins X components like apps, environments, pipelines, repositories etc.


Longer term we’re planning on making most of the developer and operations features of Jenkins X available through the UI via octant-jx but already you can:

  • view applications, environments, pipelines, repositories
  • for a pipeline quickly navigate to:
    • its Pod, Log, Pull Request or Preview Environment
    • for each step you can view the step detail or log of the step
  • see the various jobs and pipelines used to operate Jenkins X itself
  • over time will add management UI capabilities for installing, upgrading and administering Jenkins


Here is a demo video showing octant in action with Jenkins X:

We also presented octant-jx at the octant office hours this week.
