      Description

      Hi,

      Right now when a user doesn't have Overall/Administer permissions, the "Manage Jenkins" link is not shown on the main page at all. This means that even if a user has permissions to do whatever he/she wants with slave configuration, e.g., this won't be possible without knowing the direct url ../jenkins/computer.

      Maybe it is reasonable to add some kind of Overall/AdministerRead permission to control the "Manage Jenkins" link visibility? That way people would be able to get to the admin panel itself, but won't be allowed to control things they don't have permissions for anyway.

          The link is accessible via "Build Executor Status" link on the build history widget.
          Another option is to add an additional link using Sidebar Links plugin

          Reassigning the issue to the core BTW
