Plugin Information

View Read-only configurations on the plugin site for more information.

This plugin enables to show read-only configurations of job and global Jenkins configurations

The Jenkins global configuration is link "Global configuration" in left-side menu in the main page and job configuration is link "Job configuraiton" in the left-side menu in a job page

Note: the Extended Read Permission Plugin provides a somewhat similar function, merely activating a permission already defined in Jenkins core and honored by jobs and various plugins providing configurable objects (but currently not the Jenkins global configuration).

    After installation the "global configuration" entry showed up.

    Clicking it resulted in a multi page exception trace:

    	at org.kohsuke.stapler.jelly.DefaultScriptInvoker.invokeScript(
    	at org.jenkinsci.plugins.readonly.JenkinsConfiguration.transformToReadOnly(
    	at org.jenkinsci.plugins.readonly.JenkinsConfiguration.doIndex(
    	at winstone.BoundedExecutorService$
    	at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(Unknown Source)
    	at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$ Source)
    	at Source)

    The entry "Job configuration" is not visible.

    Visiting a job configuration and appending "-readonly" gives a similar/same trace.

    I'm currently running "Jenkins ver. 1.564".

    ( The "Extended Read Permission Plugin" didn't work either.)

    Could you add a changelog for the plugin please?
