Jenkins : Compress Artifacts Plugin

Keeps build artifacts compressed to save disk space on the master.

Plugin Information

View Compress Artifacts on the plugin site for more information.

Adds an option to compress build artifacts (currently in a ZIP file only) when stored on the master. To use, you must request this option in the Jenkins global configuration screen (Artifact Management for Builds section).

Artifacts produced before the plugin was installed/configured will not be compressed, though it will be served correctly.

Compatibility issues

Some other plugins do not yet support nonstandard artifact storage. In particular, Copy Artifact will be broken. (JENKINS-22637)
