  • Initial release

This plugin allows single select and multi select build parameters to be configured.

Here is a screenshot of the configuration page.

The 'value' field is a comma separated list of values for the single select or multi-select box.
This field can be left blank if the comma separated values need to be picked up from a properties file.
In that case the fields 'Property File' and 'Property Key' need to be filled in.

The 'default value' field is used to set the initial selection of the single-select or mult-select box.
in case of the multi-select box default value can be a comma separated string.
This field can be left blank if the default value needs to be picked up from a properties file.
In that case the fields 'Default Property File' and 'Default Property Key' need to be filled in.

Note: Neither "Property File" or "Default Property File" support referencing environment variables in their values. Thus, their values should be absolute paths specified without using environment variables.
