Jenkins : Extra Columns Plugin

Plugin Information

View Extra Columns on the plugin site for more information.

Older versions of this plugin may not be safe to use. Please review the following warnings before using an older version:

This is a general listview-column plugin that currently contains the following 16 columns: Build Description, Build Duration, Build Parameters, Configure Project button, Disable/Enable Project button, Job Type, Last Build Node, Last/Current Build Console output, Last Project Configuration Modification, Periodic build trigger, Project Description, SCM Type, Slave or label restriction, Test Result, User name, Workspace link.


This plugin is supposed to group multiple extra columns in one convenient plug-in. Maybe other simple column plug-ins can be merged into this one in the future.

If you have suggestions for new columns, please open a feature request in JIRA using "extra-columns" as component.

How to add columns

  • Create a new view by clicking on the "+" tab, select list view as type and name it. At the bottom of the configuration page of the new view you can add more columns and change their order.
  • If you want to add columns to the All view, follow the guide on the Editing or Replacing the All View wiki page.

How to configure columns

Columns can be configured on the "Edit view" page.


Known Issues

  • Before Jenkins version 1.511, the "Build Parameters" column also shows the type of the parameter (e.g. "(BooleanParameterValue) foobar='true'") and does not support password parameters
