Jenkins Console is now a bit more user-friendly
b-nova releases its first Jenkins plugin. This plugin is very simple, but extremely practical.
Whenever a Jenkins build should have failed, the first point of contact is the good old Jenkins console. Once in the console, you can now start looking for the actual error. The first thing to do is scroll typically all the way down, since experience has shown that the error message is hidden there.
After you have found the error and now want to fix it, you scroll all the way in the console again to the top, as the menu is located there. In the long run, this whole scrolling is quite annoying and also costs a few seconds each time.
b-nova has taken on the problem according to the mission 'Additional value through innovation' and created a plug-in,
which offers a small navigation area for the console. In the first version it will be the first time
to have a
Back to Top button. The second version will appear soon and also offers a
Scroll to Bottom and a
Scroll to error button.
How can I install the plugin?
The plugin is available in the official
Jenkins Plugin Store and can be downloaded directly from there
can be installed via Jenkins management.
