Plugin Information

No information for the plugin 'regexemail' is available. It may have been removed from distribution.

This plugin allows you to generate user email addresses from usernames.

RegEx Email plugin

This plugin allows you to generate user email addresses from usernames using regular expressions and Java format strings. Because there is no UI support for mail resolver configuration, you have to configure this plugin manually. That's done by creating a file named com.mtvi.plateng.hudson.regex.RegexMailAddressResolver.xml and dropping it in the HUDSON_HOME directory. Here's an example configuration file:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
 <userNameExpression>(.*) (.*)</userNameExpression>

As of version 0.2 of the plugin, you can specify multiple regular expression/email address pattern pairs:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
            <userNameExpression>(.*) (.*) (.*)</userNameExpression>
            <userNameExpression>(.*) (.*)</userNameExpression>

Note that the top-level element changes when you are using multiple configurations. Also note that if multiple regular expressions are potential matches (as in the case above), care must be taken to ensure the order is correct.

    I think the file name must be com.mtvi.plateng.hudson.regex.RegexMailAddressResolver.xml and not com.mtvi.plateng.hudson.ldap.RegexMailAddressResolver.xml.

      The plugin shows as installed. I added both xml files at hudson home level and at various levels of plugins/regex.  I get no messages that it is even loading or any sort of error or output from the regex package.  I have hudson running on port 8087.  It sort of looks like it's not even loading the plugin....Any ideas?

    Is there a way to reload the config file without restarting Jenkins? The regular Jenkins "Reload Configuration from Disk" doesn't seem to do this.
