Someone else should answer about Jenkins. I can at least share our experience with TFS integration.

We are currently integrating SQ with TFS and everything has been mostly good. Love the way it integrates with the build summary:

sq1

We get a quick summary and link to the report in the summary page. Getting the vNext SonarQube tasks installed from the marketplace was easy and set up a breeze. We have had only one issue with the tfvc plugin. It seems that we had to recompile the jar file in order to upgrade from 6.x to latest version and that proved difficult. In the end, we got it working but lost some report detail.

With the previous plug-in we would see the developer name/changeset associated to an issue:
sq2

Clicking the name exposed the changeset:
sq3

After the update, we lost the developer name and only see the ellipsis. You can click that for the changeset details. Seeing the developer name was better.
sq4

We had been hung up on getting the plugin working for a month and we are wondering if TFS support for the future will be available. Could be we did something wrong but in the end, it was complicated. Overall, I am still happy with our integration. Hope that helps.
