Detects whether your Jenkins configuration follows those best practices
This plugin has mainly two goals:
Jenkins is an awesome Automation System, and there are a bunch of people using it in different ways, for example: developers, testers, automation, build engineers, release engineers, scrum master, product owner and so on. Unfortunately, as the number of jobs grows, maintaining them becomes tedious, and the paradigm of no using a predefined set of best practices falls apart.
The Jenkins Lint plugin attempts to solve this problem by allowing jobs to be evaluated with some predefined best practices. The goal is for your team to be able to define those best practices to be related to their project.
Manually reviewing those jobs wouldn't be too hard, but doing the same thing all over again for every new job or for a hundred other projects is where it gets difficult and tedious. This provides a much more powerful way of analyzing them.
You can find it under
<jenkins_url>/jenkinslint or reach it via links in the sidepanel of the main page. You don't need to do anything else, just click on the Jenkins Lint link and those Lint checkers will be shown.
