      Description

      Projects within  folders are always displayed with the Folder's path as a prefix, which sometimes defeat the purpose of carefully choosing "display names" for projects and make projects lists more difficult to read.

      Suggestion: add a new optional parameter in the folder's configuration, allowing to skip the folder's name when displaying embedded projects names. The parameter's value would default to false, allowing full backward compatibility with previous versions of the plugin.

      This would easily allow a greater flexibility in the way folders display their projects names, e.g. the same project – Ancestor/Parent/proj – being displayed depending on the parameter settings of folders Ancestor and Parent:

      Ancestor >> Parent >> proj
      Parent >> proj
      Ancestor >> proj
      proj

            Kept the original description for the record; this is not related to cloudbee folder per-se.

            Seems more related to grouping jobs in views in general; there is a pull request (#81) related to build-monitor plugin that seems to be stuck in the pipes for some time.

            The same applies to other types of views (e.g. List view or Dashboard view); views can get difficult to read in presence of folders, except when created in the folder itself (but this is not always what you want...)

            I consider this a bug in dashboard-view-plugin. I removed the other components for now. Consider raising issues with the other plugins if similar issues exist there.

            This should have been fixed in release 2.13, with this pull request:
