About this plugin

This plugin adds two new actions on jobs' screen, so that users who don't have the required permissions to rename and/or delete jobs can request the Jenkins administrator to do so.
The Jenkins administrator then gets a dedicated screen to handle all the incoming requests.

How does it work?

For users

Renaming request

Users who have the configure permission but not the create and delete ones can configure jobs but not rename them. With this plugin, they'll get a new Ask for renaming action on their jobs:

When clicking on it, they'll be presented with a screen that allows defining the new name for the job:

When clicking on the Send request button, a new item would appear in the administrator's management screen (cf. below) for him to perform (or not) the request.

Deletion request

Users who don't have the delete permission can't, of course, delete jobs. The plugin offers for them a new Ask for deletion action on their jobs:

When clicking on it, they'll be presented with a confirmation screen and, if the request for deletion is confirmed, a new item would appear in the administrator's management screen (cf. below) for him to perform (or not) the request.

For administrators

Administrators get a new Pending renaming and deletion requests entry in Jenkins' main configuration screen (Manage Jenkins > Configure System):

This offers a screen which centralizes all renaming and deletion requests:

Administrators can then select a set of requests and apply or cancel them.
