Add tags to Jenkins builds or export specific builds

Sep 12, 2013 in ideas, jenkins | blog

This idea is from @abayer, from these following tweets:

We could simply add tags to builds, and then create some place that would list the builds (or other things) that are tagged appropriately. Or we could add a way to define which builds should be exported to some tool, and then via the plug-in API maybe, post to this external tool.

Add support to Promoted Builds on Build Pipeline Plug-in

Jul 24, 2013 in ideas, jenkins | blog


Jenkins Build Pipeline Plug-in, by Centrum Systems (Australia), is an excellent plug-in, used by many users (over 6000 downloads according to last report).

However, it does not work well with the Jenkins Promoted Builds Plug-in, another great plug-in (over 4100 downloads last month).

It means that users are not able to create pipelines based on promotion (promoted pipelines?). This contribution would be awesome, useful and help a lot of users (maybe over 10000? :-)

Enhance MySQL management in Stacks (University of Oregon)

May 03, 2013 in ideas, bioinformatics | blog


Stacks processes RAD DNA sequences and produces output, that is displayed on the Web with a bundled PHP+MySQL application. This application is quite useful, especially since it helps developers to analyze large amounts of data.


One limitation though, is that some management tasks may need manual execution of SQL’s in the database. Someone could add few scripts or new features to the Web interface (like a management section?). This could help researchers on their research.

Create a plug-in (or contribute to an existing one [MSBuild?]) that exposes meta information about a .NET solution

Mar 31, 2013 in dotnet, jenkins, ideas | blog

This idea happened after Andrew Gray’s objectified-solutions. With Objectified Solutions one can extract meta information from a .NET solution. This information includes:

  • Global properties of the solution
  • List of projects in solution
  • Global properties of each project
  • List of source files in each project
  • List of System references that each project depends on
  • List of Project references that each project depends on
  • Basic properties of each source file

The code is hosted at GitHub too. Maybe someone could even think about a “.NET solution project” job type for Jenkins.
