Artifact diff

Artifact diff plugin

Plugin can compare content of an artifact identified by its relative path among different builds.

URL format

Plugin introduces transient build action using artifact-diff url name. Action itself consumes build number to compare against followed by an artifact path.


The output argument is used to switch between the html (the default) and plain text output.

  • output = html|plain

Output format

  • Plugin uses the Unified diff format to represent artifact difference.
  • /dev/null placeholder filename is used to represent an artifact that could not be read, such artifact is then treated as empty.
  • An empty diff sequence is used when both artifacts equal.
