Jenkins : Suppress Stack Trace Plugin

Plugin Information

View Stack Trace Suppression Plugin (deprecated) on the plugin site for more information.

This plugin prevents the stack trace reported by Jenkins when a processing fails unexpectedly. This allows security sensitive deployments of Jenkins to minimize the information revealed to unprivileged/anonymous users.

With this plugin installed, the error message sent to the browser will only include the UUID generated for each error and no stack trace (unless the user is already an administrator, in which case the stack trace will be shown like Jenkins normally does.) The actual stack trace gets sent to the java.util.logging loggers, which normally gets printed to the stderr of the Jenkins master JVM, as well as the /log in the Jenkins web UI. Administrator can look up this UUID in these logs to determine the exact stack trace.
