Support Bundle Anonymization

Beginning in version 2.48, this plugin now allows for automated ContentFilter extensions to enable anonymizing of various data. By enabling this feature, the default set of filters will anonymize agent names, agent computer names, agent labels, view names (aka folders), job names, usernames, and IP addresses (both IPv4 and IPv6). These data are mapped to randomly generated fake names which are saved to Jenkins master. A Jenkins administrator can view these mappings by going to Manage Jenkins › Support Bundle Anonymization. All files written to the support bundle by this and all extensions of this plugin will replace all instances of the original values with their anonymized counterpart. Note that the Stop Words list on that page shows which terms are ignored when filtering names (case-insensitive full match).

Limitations

 

Anonymization filters only apply to text files. It cannot handle non-Jenkins URLs, custom proprietary Jenkins plugin names, and exceptions quoting invalid Groovy code in a Jenkins pipeline. The active plugins, disabled plugins, failed plugins, and Dockerfile reports are not anonymized due to several Jenkins plugins and other Java libraries using version numbers that are indistinguishable from IP addresses. These reports are in the files plugins/active.txtplugins/disabled.txtplugins/failed.txt, and docker/Dockerfile. These files should all be manually reviewed if you do not wish to disclose the names of custom proprietary plugins.
