Ability to link to individual pipeline

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      Our pipeline view is very crowded due to having a pipeline for every code push on any branch. It would be great to have URLs representing each individual pipeline version, so that we could support use cases such as updating a GitHub Pull Request with a direct link to the pipeline for that PR.

          This feature would be very helpful! In particular, I would like to refer to the pipeline of a certain run of the pipeline's "Initial Job" (e.g. the build number of the pipeline's "Initial Job" could be a parameter in the URL's query string).

          would be awsome. Maybe we could have a separate view that would only list one build pipeline. The anchor idea wouldn't probably work, because pipeline builds shift down and into other pages as more builds are added at the top, so you can't create a permanent link using an anchor without updating the page number.
          The only way would be to create a separate view, to see just this one build pipeline. In our usecase we have many many builds and your build constantly moves so you can't easily keep track of it, a separate view would really help.

          This is issue will most likely not be addressed unless a community contributors proposes a solution.

          Just a possible implementation idea: this could be done relatively simply, by generating html anchors for each pipeline instance, and probably some sort of visual highlighting of the designated pipeline (e.g., a backgroung color).
          As mentioned above, if the pipeline instance is not in the standard top-n view, then the view should be expanded automatically (there is also a pagination ticket that could be related). Alternatively, an individual pipeline link could represent only this one pipeline.

          This may not be useful without also being able to link to instances which are no longer in the top N of a given pipeline. Links expiring with time isn't ideal.
