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.
Name - Job name
TargetUrl - Target URL in one of three formats:
Full URL stating with http:// or https://
If your jenkins server is at https://my.jenkins.io/jenkins and you moved team "team"'s folder to a new jenkins server with url of https://team.jenkins.io/jenkins You can create an item in old server with TargetUrl of
Relative URL starting with / - this will be relative to the root of current web server.
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.
- Currently, when you save your item, you will be redirected to the URL immediately (if item is enabled)
- Renaming of items broke sometime before initial release
- Absolute lack of unit tests
