      Description

      It would be nice if views had a configurable display name just like jobs. This would be great because I can create views with an arbitrary name however the URL would be accessed a different way.

      This missing enhancement has created a challenge for scripting against views and XML on disk.

      e.g.

      curl 'jenkins/view/name with space/config.xml' | diff - 'view/name with space/config.xml'
      

      I'd rather the display name have name with space but the view is accessed via the URL jenkins/view/shortname/config.xml.

            Not sure this makes sense as a feature, as there's no potential for breaking stupid tools that cannot deal with spaces. The URL is just percent-encoded and that's it.
            Benefit doesn't seem to outweigh the cost.

            An additional use case for me includes shorter URLs. I can have a long-named view but have the URL be short. I don't think this would require too much re-architecture to include this enhancement.
