Hello, thank you all for Jenkins. It is a wonderful project.
We had one major problem setting up Jenkins that can be easily fixed:
- When you create a Slave and accidentally add a space at the end of the Name, it is impossible to tell by looking at the name that it contains whitespace.
- If you try to use the Slave's Name such as in a Label Expression when restricting where a project can be run, you are told "There's no slave/cloud that matches this assignment."
- It is very hard to work out that the problem is an extra space in the Slave's Name.
- You COULD enter the Slave's Name as "Blah " in the Label Expression, but the real problem is you accidentally added a space to the name that should be removed.
We believe there is no good reason to allow spaces at the end (or beginning?) of a Slave's Name and we request that you trim the Slave's Name of spaces when you Create and Save a Slave's configuration.
