Project goal: Improve UI and REST APIs using new technologies to make it more user-friendly
Role Strategy Plugin is widely used in Jenkins as an authorization engine, but it has a pretty legacy Web UI which could be significantly improved. The plugin’s existing APIs are also very limited, and they could be redesigned.
Redesign the WebUI using a new technology stack, e.g. React
Introduce new REST APIs and CLIs to improve manageability of the plugin
Introduce new logic to query permissions from Jenkins instances, probably as a part of the Security Inspector Plugin
Offer new features, e.g. the
sudo mode for Jenkins administrators
Create more demos for the plugin using Configuration-as-Code and other such technologies
You can find more UX-related requests for the plugin using this JIRA query. As a part of the project applications, ideas for related plugins (e.g. Security Inspector or Ownership) may be also proposed.
Create a Jenkins instance with several projects and user roles defined by the plugin
oleg-nenashev/demo-jenkins-config-as-code can be used as an example of such configuration
Try out various configurations of Role Strategy and explore the features documented for the plugin
