Shortcut Job

Build Status


Sometimes you want to have everything in one place, even if in reality it is spread across a number of folders or even a number of jenkins servers. This plugin helps with that by allowing you to create an item that is a shortcut to any URL - either absolute, or relative to the web server or relative to Jenkins root.


Simply create a new item with type Shortcut - enter a name for it and URL, and you are done.

Job Options:

  • Name - Job name

  • TargetUrl - Target URL in one of three formats:

    1. Full URL stating with http:// or https://

      • Example:

    2. Relative URL starting with / - this will be relative to the root of current web server.

    3. Relative URL not stating with / - this will be relative to your Jenkins install

  • enabled - This flag allows you to troubleshoot your shortcut. If not enabled, clicking on the item will display target instead of redirecting you.
