View sequential stages in the pipeline visualization graph

    Description

      In progress - one level of visualization below parent stage. Additional research and feedback will help us determine future visualizations.

      I've tried using nested stages in order to group each shell script alone to have a meaningful data, however this broken the UI of blueocean and it stopped it from showing showing the variant steps.

      Example 1

      def test = [:]
      
      test["a"] = {
          stage ("a") {
              stage ("ab") {
                  sh "echo stage abc"
              }
              stage ("xyz") {
                  sh "echo stage xyz"
              }
          }
      }
      
      test["b"] = {
          stage ("b") {
              stage ("bb") {
                  sh "echo stage bb"
              }
              stage ("bxz") {
                  sh "echo stagebxyz"
              }
          }
      }
      node {
         //stage 'start'
         parallel test
         stage ('middle') {
             sh "echo middle"
         }
         
      }
      

      Example 2

      node() {
        stage('Build') {
          println 'I prepare the build for the parallel steps'
        }
      
        stage('Test') {
         parallel (
       "win7-vs2012" : { stage("checkout") { }; stage("build") { }; stage("test") { } },
       "win10-vs2015" : { stage("checkout") { }; stage("build") { }; stage("test") { }},
       "linux-gcc5" : { stage("checkout") { }; stage("build") { }; stage("test") { } }
      )
        }
      }

            This is a very long thread so forgive me if this is already covered...

            Can anyone explain why a stage that contains sub-stages is displayed as a preceding node instead of a container?

            Take this example:

            The stage "Test" performs no actions of its own, but it contains the sub-stages that follow.

            Wouldn't it make more sense to display it as a container, something like:

            Is there any luck for implementing the pipeline mockup proposed by Ben Dean? https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-38442?focusedCommentId=292647&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-292647

            Should we create a separate issue for this?

            sophistifunk is there still no plans to support nested parallels? we have built a nested parallel scripted pipeline, and the blue ocean view seems to change between various representations. More worryingly, if a task fails it shows as GREEN  . Something like pipeline_mockups.png from above would be amazing
