This is a general listview-column plugin that currently contains the following columns: Test Result, Configure Project button, Disable/Enable Project button, Project Description, Build Description, SCM Type, Last/Current Build Console output, Job Type, Build Duration, Build Parameters.


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.

How to configure columns

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