Allows users to take responsibility for failed builds and to comment on them. Shows up as a build badge (small icon in build history), so teammates can see who is working on what along with notes.

Claims may be made sticky to follow the user claiming the failure until the build is successful again.

To claim a build:

  • Ensure you are logged in, it doesn't work with anonymous accounts.
  • Configure jobs that should be claimable by adding an Allow broken build claiming post-build action.
  • When a build breaks, open its page and there will be a link to claim it, right under the Started by user bit.

Emails for assigning/claiming builds:
Send emails when builds are assigned or claimed by checking "Send emails when assigning/claiming builds" in the general System Configuration page. Enabling requires the mailer plugin.

As the plugin uses a post build action to do its magic, it will not add anything to failed builds which were run prior to enabling the plugin (via the above mentioned post-build action).
