Useful Jenkins Plugins: JobConfigHistory Plugin

This plugin comes in handy while creating/modifying Jenkins jobs. Once you install this plugin, there is small ‘spanner’ symbol next to the individual builds run

Clicking on this spanner icon will show you an xml comparison between the configurations before and after the change on the respective jenkins job.

Also there is a button called ‘Restore this configuration’ which will revert the configuration to the previous one. This comes in very handy while designing CI pipelines where in frequent changes/additions are made to the build process.

This is a must have plugin if you are a Jenkins user. 🙂

Hope this is helpful 🙂
