      Description

      I saw that currently, we can save the elements on : 

      • Jenkins : filesystem
      • Mongodb.

      I would like to know your output about using git as the database ?
      My pros for this are : 

      • We can add the git workflow to add / change / delete rules (with MR)
      • We have the history of rules.
      • The database can be readonly, if necessary (it my case, we have a lot constrain about service user with write rights)
      • we have our Jenkins conf centralized on the same place (pipeline can get their conf from git)
      • git manage files, so it should work out of the box with the current jenkins database implementation.

          Hi Thomas,

          I think it sounds like a good idea.
          The information that is to be stored is suited well for git, since it is human-readable text.
          The biggest pro for it would be the history, which sounds like a good reason to do it, in both of the current solutions, we only have a latest version of a failure cause.

          And implementation-wise I guess it wouldn't be that hard to integrate with the existing git plugins.

          It isn't something I have the time to look at, but feel free to hack away and create a pull request.
