This plugin makes it possible to change the Jenkins build timestamp format (provided by the Jenkins BUILD_TIMESTAMP variable).


The Jenkins BUILD_TIMESTAMP variable uses by default the date and time format 'YYYY-MM-DD_hh-mm-ss' of the international standard.
You can change this format by providing your own pattern.
You must specify a java.text.SimpleDateFormat pattern such as the value 'yyyyMMddHHmmss'.


  • Changes date and time format to the Jenkins instance (all jobs on all slaves will be impacted).
  • Changes date and time format to the slave (all jobs on this slave will be impacted).
