Spinnaker can listen to events, and collect artifacts produced by builds in external Continuous Integration (CI) systems. These events can trigger Pipelines, and the artifacts can be used by Spinnaker’s image bakery to produce machine images.

For example, the Source to Prod codelab configures a Jenkins Job to produce a Debian package as an artifact that is handed to Spinnaker to build a VM image which Spinnaker deploys.
