Extra Columns

ID: extra-columns


Older versions of this plugin may not be safe to use. Please review the following warnings before using an older version:


This is a plugin for the Jenkins CI server which provides additional columns in the main UI screen. It's using the listview-column extension. Since additional columns do not require a lot of code, the intention is to bundle multiple columns in one plugin instead of having a separate plugin for each column.

It currently provides the following columns:

  • Build description
  • Build duration
  • Build parameters
  • Configure build button
  • Disable/enable Project button/icon
  • Job type
  • Last build
  • Last build node
  • Last/current build console
  • Last project configuration modification
  • Periodic build trigger
  • Project description
  • SCM type
  • Agent or label restriction
  • Test result
  • User name
  • Workspace link

Some columns have been adapted from existing plugins that in some cases are not actively maintained anymore, e.g.

Changelog & Releases

See GitHub releases


How to add a column

  • Create a new view by clicking on the "+" tab above the list of jobs, select "list view" as type and give it a name. At the bottom of the configuration page of the new view you can add more columns and change their order.
  • If you want to add columns to the All view, follow the guide on the Editing or Replacing the All View wiki page.

How to configure a column

Columns can be configured on the "Edit view" page. Please note, not all columns can be configured.


Please create an issue in the Jenkins JIRA on the "extra-columns-plugin" component. Please do not use GitHub issues!


Since the column API is quite simple, it's easy to get started. Contributions are more than welcome. :)

You have an idea for a new column or want to improve an existing column?

The fastest way to get this done, is to fork the GitHub project, take a look at the existing code, copy and/or modify a column and create a pull-request.
