Closed, ResolvedPublic


Blue Ocean is a modern user experience for jenkins ui.

See and

I have it installed on a test instance at if you want to see what it looks like.

Any actual advantages apart from "it looks different" which justify additional maintenance costs?

Yup Blue Ocean is definitely worth trying and might end up being in core to form Jenkins 3 (pure speculation).

Dosent really add extra maintenance as upstream maintains it, we just install it. Per @hashar they are going to this the default ui in jenkins one day once the ui is complete.

This can now be done as we have upgraded to Jenkins 2.x

Yep. We do that for gerrit too.

yep, checked this:

jenkins docs say: "Both the nocanon option to ProxyPass, and AllowEncodedSlashes NoDecode, are required for certain Jenkins features to work."

Apache docs say: "Normally, mod_proxy will canonicalise ProxyPassed URLs. But this may be incompatible with some backends, particularly those that make use of PATH_INFO. The optional nocanon keyword suppresses this and passes the URL path "raw" to the backend. Note that this keyword may affect the security of your backend, as it removes the normal limited protection against URL-based attacks provided by the proxy."

This has now been added. I merged Paladox' change ( ) and graceful'ed Apache on contint1001/2001.

SAL: 21:41 mutante: contint1001 - graceful'ed Apache to deploy gerrit:351391

bump, @hashar i think we can do this now :), we are running the latest jenkins 2.x update + this is a plugin and won't break / url (since the new ui is on /blue/ :)
