Invoke Batch Tasks should support Folder absolute path

      Folders Plugin 5.11
      Batch Task Plugin 1.17

      When using folders (plugin), the batch tasks to be triggered must be referenced with an absolute path: while the task suggestion field works fine with a relative job path during configuration, the batch task is not properly configured in the later screens.

      Let's consider a folder named aFolder with a job named aJob; that job has a batch task named aBatchTask

      On http://.../jenkins/job/aFolder/job/aJob/configure :
      Add an Invoke batch tasks post build step with two tasks, one absolute and one relative:

      • Project: /aFolder/aJob
      • Task: aBatchTask
      • Project: aJob
      • Task: aBatchTask

      On http://.../jenkins/job/aFolder/job/aJob :
      The "Downstream Tasks" lists:

      • aFolder » aJob » aBatchTask
      • Invalid entry: aJob » aBatchTask

      An absolute job reference seems to be required here.
