Quick Reference: CI/CD


Review the stages of a CI/CD pipeline.


This quick-reference provides an overview of fundamental concepts behind CI/CD. While the Databricks tools and integrations mentioned in this course can be used by DevOps teams for CI/CD, this course was designed to summarize what happens during each stage of a CI/CD pipeline (not provide a technical how-to into each of these stages). Future courses will dive into each these stages in greater detail. Note: We will use Jenkins as an example automation system in this course.

Learning objectives

  • Summarize each stage in a traditional CI/CD pipeline.

  • Outline the steps in configuring the Jenkins automation agent for use in CI/CD.


  • Beginning-level experience with CICD, DevOps and/or the software development lifecycle (but not necessarily on Databricks)

Learning path

  • This course is part of the data engineer and platform administrator path.

Proof of completion

  • Upon 80% completion of this course, you will receive a proof of completion.
