Archived versions of this plugin remain available for download.

Plugin Information

Cannot Load Update Center

IOException: PKIX path validation failed: validity check failed

Simply extends Jenkins' simple security to remove the CAPTCHA check.


Version 1.x

  • Probably should deprecate this plugin and roll into the core security, but I didn't want to try and touch the core since it's "security".
  • If this can't be rolled into the core security, then at least the core should be tweaked to be more extensible - e.g. make about 5 methods protected instead of private. The problem with that is then this plugin would depend on the very latest core, which is okay since Jenkins warns you not to upgrade.

Version 1.0 - Initial release


  1. This plugin should probably be deprecated. In 1.416, JCaptcha was removed from the core and a plugin was created. In the process of this move, Captcha security was made optional. For further reference, please review:

    1. Agreed!  How do I go about marking it as deprecated?  I can put a note here on the wiki, but is there an update site mechanism, or something I should put in the pom, or something like that?

      1. yes, all it takes is adding plugin-deprecated label here on the wiki page and it will be omitted in the update center.. I'm adding that now.
