Can I use my existing release pipeline?

With Jenkins X you are free to create your own pipeline to do the release if you wish; though doing so means you miss out on our extension model which lets you easily enable various extension Apps like Governance, Compliance, code quality, code coverage, security scanning, vulnerability testing and various other extensions which are being added all the time through our community.

We’ve specifically built this extension model to minimise the work your teams have in having to edit + maintain pipelines across many separate microservices; the idea is we’re trying to automate both the pipelines and the extensions to the pipelines so teams can focus on their actual code and less on the CI/CD plumbing which is pretty much all undifferentiated heavy lifting these days.
