I need a functionality to access workspace files during the build via jenkins http frontend. From some hints on stackoverflow I see that this can be achieved by actual enabling the access to workspace in matrix security plugin.
Actually I've set 'Logged-in users can do anything' and 'Allow anonymous read access' to 'ON'. So I expected at least logged in users can access workspace files. Unfortunately, they don't.
Steps to reproduce:
Pre-req: you have jenkins installed and at least one job is configured.
- Go to 'Manage Jenkins' -> 'Configure Global Security' -> 'Authorization'
- Check 'Logged-in users can do anything' radio button
- Click 'Apply' button
- Go to '<Job name>' on jenkins main screen
- Click 'Build now'
=> No 'Workspace' link on the left job menu
Expected: workspace files are available via 'Workspace' link by http.
