This plugin adds distinctive
With this plugin enabled, every control inside a form gets the
path attribute. The value of this attribute is something like "/hudson-tasks-ArtifactArchiver/artifacts", and is modeled after XPath.
Configuration pages in Jenkins are assmbled from small pieces that plugins contribute. Furthermore, in general they form a tree structure, and each such fragment can be used multiple times in different context. For example, think of Conditional BuildStep Plugin that allows you to add arbitrary builder as a nested builder inside the "conditional build step" builder.
Because of this reusability of fragments, the
name attributes cannot be used reliably to point to a specific fragment. That's why we need XPath-like expression.
This plugin works with 1.424 and later. When you interact with form and cause DOM changes, you can call
With Jenkins 1.452 and later, this explicit invocation is unnecessary.
