There are now three different Docker Hub repositories that are or have been used as the "official" Jenkins image. This article aims at providing a clarification about which one is the current official one (as of December 2018 :-)).

The official one

docker pull jenkins/jenkins

i.e. is the right repository to use.

I also documented some time ago on my blog the recommended way to run Jenkins using the official Docker image.

The deprecated ones


Deprecated since a long time already. A short version of why we stopped using and updating this image is that we never had a way to get our images published without having each time to go through a manual process.


Deprecated since a long time too, but for easing transition, we had kept updating both jenkins/jenkins (the right one) and jenkinsci/jenkins together. We stopped updating jenkinsci/jenkins in early December 2018 (cf. INFRA-1934 for details if you are interested)

Thanks for reading!
