Do you have a favorite app you have added to Splunk Cloud?

Mine is the Jenkins app for the value it adds to monitoring Jenkins, from the health of the servers it is running on, to the app itself, to the users using it (good for finding bad actors or the person who accidentally broke the build job!), to the jobs themselves and everything about them -- literally everything the job outputs!

For many, Jenkins is their CICD orchestrator that keeps the trains running on time, so keeping it healthy is critical!

And this is just one of the many DevOps apps in Splunkbase. Check out the DevOps category to find more.
