Overloaded use of "X" for different behaviour

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      When viewing a build result in blue ocean you have 3 different places where the X is used.

      1) top left (to represent a build failure?)
      2) top right (to go back to the job / activity page)
      3) individual step (to show as failure)

      It is very confusing that the one in the top right and top left are visually the same (except font height yet do very different things.

      BO should use different renders for different things not use the same thing in different places.

          This is a well known design sin but is going to take some reworking to make right.

          I almost always click the top-left one (because it's larger and reminds me of the browser UI on Android; see screenshot below) and then I remember it doesn't actually do anything. Please change the icon (the top-left one).

          Also, I believe JENKINS-42488 is a duplicate of this one.
