Avatar, links, contributor details and other metadata missing until first index/scan

    Description

      After upgrading to the 2.0.x release line, the Metadata information is not available until the first index / scan has been completed.

      This is expected behaviour as the raison d'ĂȘtre for the change to 2.0.x was to remove the hacks used by these plugins in 1.x for storing metadata and replace them with a correct storage.

      The side-effect of the old storage mechanism was that the metadata updating was inconsistent. Additionally, the metadata stored in 1.x was partial and missed some key components. Consequently the old metadata can neither be trusted to be accurate in all cases nor is it complete.

          Users are required to perform an index / scan to ensure that the metadata is available. Critical metadata has been inferred where it is appropriate in JENKINS-41464.

          The remaining metadata (avatar, links, contributor display name and email address) is not used from a functional perspective by any currently active code paths
