This plugin enables users to set a revision (a version) for the Jenkins job.


The job revision sets the JOB_REVISION as an environment variable in the Jenkins job.

Some use cases

  • To bring traceability when there are multiple branches of a product.


Combination with other plugins

It is suggested to use the EnvInject Plugin to manage all job environment variables.
EnvInject plugin retrieves the job revision variable (JOB_REVISION).


  • Retrieve the revision from the main build step stored in your build descriptor (Maven, Ivy, Gradle, ...)
