Plugin Information

View Calendar View on the plugin site for more information.



Shows past and future builds in a calendar view.

Features

  • Provides a month, week and day view of past and future builds
  • Indicates status of past builds by color
  • Displays when future scheduled builds will happen
  • Shows estimated duration of future scheduled builds
  • Configurable date and time settings

Usage

1. Create a new view

Select the Calendar View option and give the view a name.

2. Configure the view

Select the jobs whose builds should be displayed in the view and customize the view to your liking:

Tip: to be more flexible in selecting the jobs use the View Job Filters Plugin.

3. Open the view

This will show all the past and future builds for the jobs that you have selected in the previous step.

Note: there is currently no auto refresh available.

Paste builds

Past builds will appear in four different colors:

  • Successfull builds will be blue
  • Failed builds will be red
  • Unstable builds will be yellow
  • Aborted builds will be dark gray

Clicking on a past build will lead to that specific build's detail page.

Future builds

Future builds are light gray with a dashed border.

Clicking on a future build will lead to the job's detail page.

Development

Clone the repository then execute the following in the project's root directory:

$ mvn install

This will install Java dependencies as well as a local node installation and npm dependencies.

You can now run the plugin in a Jenkins instance by executing the following:

$ mvn hpi:run

  1. I installed this view and really love it for workload management.  Kudos.  Unfortunately it doesn't display future jobs for any of my pipeline scripted jobs, only the current and past builds.  Is there any limitations to displaying future builds that I should be aware of?

    1. Distributing the workload of scheduled jobs is why I created the plugin in the first place, so it's good to know that it's being used for that (smile)

      The reason future builds for pipeline jobs don't appear is that their trigger implementation is different from FreeStyleProjects and MatrixProjects. I've created a JIRA issue that you can watch if you want to be informed once this is fixed. Thanks for reporting the problem!
