    Description

      jamesdumay added recently description display to blue ocean in JENKINS-41769. Unfortunately it is not rendering build description property in consistent manner. The build property is multi-line and supports HTML content, while its blue ocean presentation expects single-line and plain text.

      I was already using this property, filling it with html tables, links and images, and now at blue ocean it presents itself as HTML source.

      Possible solutions:

      • allow to disable display of description in blue ocean
      • make the blue ocean description rendered in same manner as it is in other parts of Jenkins
      • make the blue ocean description relay on other property, i.e. Summary, Brief, Note

            +1 for supporting HTML in the description.  We don't have the complex tables that other mentioned, but just a simple link back to the pull-request.  Really miss having this in Blue Ocean, although at least for a link I can copy/paste it go there.

            For those who are using a browser that supports chrome extensions, I've worked on this: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/blue-ocean-description-ht/maahpenodjcdhodbonmdkfgnceddigae

            This chrome extension will update the description box to use HTML. The source code can be found here: https://github.com/JRJurman/blue-ocean-description-htmlify-chrome-extension

            If you find any issues or would like to propose a change feel free to post a PR or Issue on github.

            Any update on this one ?

            We need to display some data in order to quickly understand who launched a pipeline and what it did and therefore.

            It would be very nice if we could have the same nice display as in the old interface.
