(Built-In Node Name and Label Migration)
  • Add the system property jenkins.model.Jenkins.nodeNameAndSelfLabelOverride to specify a different node name and label for the built-in node (e.g. for Configuration as Code use cases) than the one otherwise determined.

  • Revamp the layout and icons of the header bar and breadcrumbs. Instances with plugins that depend on details of the Jenkins layout (e.g. Simple Theme Plugin) may experience UI/layout problems. A new experimental header color scheme can be enabled by setting the jenkins.ui.refresh system property to true. (issue 60920)
  • Introduce a new experimental UI that can be enabled by setting the jenkins.ui.refresh system property to true. Currently it includes a new header color scheme, more changes to be added as a part of the UI/UX revamp. (pull 4463issue 60920JEP-223Jenkins UX SIG)

This is an experimental feature, disabled by default, that can be enabled by setting the system property to true. (pull 4501issue 60266JEP-223)
  • Add a new experimental Overall/SystemRead permission, which gives (almost) full read access to the Jenkins instance. The permission is disabled by default, install the Extended Read Permission plugin to activate it. (pull 4506issue 12548JEP-224Extended Read Permission plugin)
  • Deprecate the Overall/RunScripts, Overall/UploadPlugins, and Overall/ConfigureUpdateCenter permissions. Permissions were announced as dangerous and disabled by default in major authorization plugins in 2017. Custom authorization strategy implementations that grant Overall/Administer without implying one or more of these three permissions will no longer work as expected. Configurations that grant any of these permissions to users without Overall/Administer will no longer work as expected. (pull 4365issue 60266JEP-2232017-04-10 security advisory for Matrix Authorization plugin2017-04-10 security advisory for Role-Based Authorization plugin)
