The purpose of this plugin is to bring true inheritance of properties between multiple job definitions to Jenkins. This allows you to define common properties only once and inherit them to multiple projects.


The role of this plug-in can be broadly described as bringing the concept of property inheritance to Jenkins. The goal is to fulfil the following statements:

In a way, you can think of this plugin this way: If Jenkins is the C language, this plugin is its C++ equivalent.

Ideal candidates for this are, for example, the SCM setup, common pre-build and post-build steps as well as cleanup and logging properties.

Additionally, the plugin offers the following nice feature additions:

Known Issues:

There are the known issues for version 19.08.02.


Version 19.08.02 (20. August 2019)

The 19.08.01 version had an issue, where the "Archive the artifacts" post-build step was unconditionally hidden from the config screen.

That was acceptable for the internal release, but of course not for the wider open source release.

This version is the same as 19.08.01, but defaults to keeping the post-build step visible while offering a global configuration option to disallow the step, if need be.

Version 19.08.01 (20. August 2019)

This release combines all the changes that we implemented since 2017 for our internal version.
It also aligns the externally visible versioning scheme to the one used internally at Intel, which will make it easier to align the code more often. Versions will now be numbered with a "Year.Month.Release" scheme.

The most relevant changes are:

Version 2.0.0 (14. March 2017)

This commit combines all the changes that we implemented in 2015 on GitHub (without a release) and in the past 2 years for our internal version.
Since this is a dramatic and large change, the version was set to 2.0.0.

The code should be compatible with servers that were running the last version 1.5.3 (as long as they're running Jenkins > v1.625.3), but no guarantees can be made, as we can't check all edge-cases.
As such extreme care should be taken when upgrading from 1.5.3.

The most relevant changes are:

Version 1.5.3 (29. July 2014)

Version 1.5.2 (29. July 2014)
