This plugin allows you to choose between Git tags or sha1 of your SCM repository so Git Plugin installed is required.

Plugin Info

This plugin allows you to assign git tag or revision number as parameter in Parametrized builds.
There is no need to set up anything special, this plugin will read your default configuration from Git Plugin.

It firstly fetching (by git fetch) current repository, and listing all the tags/sha1's to choose from.

You can select the following sorting options for tags/revision/branches/branches_or_tags

  • none
  • descending
  • ascending
  • ascending smart
  • descending smart

For the smart variants the compare treats a sequence of digits as a single character. Contributed by Graeme Hill.

Known Limitations / Bugs

  • You must first trigger a build if your workspace is empty. The list to choose from will be empty.
  • git parameter plugin doesn't support Jenkins slave setup with git repos checked out only on slaves see Issue
