Installing multiple plugins using "install-plugin" jenkins CLI command

      I would like to be able to install all the plugins I require in an empty jenkins install.

      I use this bash command to install a list of plugins:

      java -jar $CLI_WAR -s "http://localhost:4444/" install-plugin parameterized-trigger http://updates.jenkins-ci.org/download/plugins/git/2.3.5/git.hpi http://updates.jenkins-ci.org/download/plugins/git-client/1.17.1/git-client.hpi http://updates.jenkins-ci.org/download/plugins/build-name-setter/1.3/build-name-setter.hpi  -restart

      Installing multiple plugins based on their "short name" seems to work fine (even though it is not documented). However, installing multiple plugins from URL's does not seem to work. I don't get any errors. Only the first plugin from URL seems to get installed.

      It would be great if this becomes a consistent documented feature.

      The workaround is to run "install-plugin" many times. Downside is that you'd have to enter the passphrase many times.

      Using jenkins 1.643.
