      Description

      We use a Jenkins job to collect the artifacts from other successful builds and generate an installer. We would like the ability to select the desired build for each subcomponent. Currently, we use the Latest Successful Build parameter for each sub-project.

      Ideally, we would be presented with a drop down list with the latest build number and build description on top and pre-selected, and previous builds selectable through the drop down menu. We put our jenkins-generated full version string in the description of each subproject, i.e. "5.3.456.22333 Release".

      Normally, we would just accept the default build parameters, but if it's determined that we need to regenerate an installer and roll back to a previous build of a single project, I don't want the user to have to go investigate which Jenkins build number to manually enter. It seems that it wouldn't be too difficult to simply enumerate the existing builds (and maybe filter by successful, etc.).

      Thanks, Loren

          Sounds interesting, but not something I plan to work on.
          Note that build selectors are an extension point in copyartifact plugin, so you can write you own plugin that adds this functionality without any changes to copyartifact.
