      Description

      Hi,

      My pipelines are managed with multi branch. I source code from GitHub with the GitHub plugin. Every component use Git tags to compute by themselves their version number. By default, Jenkins doesn't fetch tags during clones. So I need to activate "Advanced clone behaviors" (the option "Fetch tags" is enabled by default) for each of my projects.

      My issue is that I didn't found any solution to enable "Advanced clone behaviors" behavior in "multibranchPipelineJob" with CasC plugin. I have searched across, Stack Overflow, web and documentation without ending.

      Here is my example CasC section relative to `jobs` CasC section:

      jobs: - script: |
          multibranchPipelineJob('my-repo') {
            displayName('my-repo')
            description('my-repo')
      
            branchSources {
              github {
                id('my-repo')
                apiUri('https://github.corp.com/api/v3')
                scanCredentialsId('my-creds')
                repoOwner('my-org')
                repository('my-repo')
              }
            }
            orphanedItemStrategy {
              discardOldItems {
                daysToKeep(31)
              }
            }
            triggers {
              // Schedule every minutes
              cron('* * * * *')
            }
            configure {
              // Re-write Git traits
              def traits = it / sources / data / 'jenkins.branch.BranchSource' / source / traits
              // Discover branches
              // See: https://github.com/jenkinsci/github-branch-source-plugin/blob/master/src/main/java/org/jenkinsci/plugins/github_branch_source/BranchDiscoveryTrait.java
              traits << 'org.jenkinsci.plugins.github_branch_source.BranchDiscoveryTrait' {
                // Select only branches (no PRs)
                strategyId(1)
              }
              // Discover tags
              // See: https://github.com/jenkinsci/github-branch-source-plugin/blob/master/src/main/java/org/jenkinsci/plugins/github_branch_source/TagDiscoveryTrait.java
              traits << 'org.jenkinsci.plugins.github_branch_source.TagDiscoveryTrait' { }
              // Discover pull-requests
              // See: https://github.com/jenkinsci/github-branch-source-plugin/blob/master/src/main/java/org/jenkinsci/plugins/github_branch_source/OriginPullRequestDiscoveryTrait.java
              traits << 'org.jenkinsci.plugins.github_branch_source.OriginPullRequestDiscoveryTrait' {
                // Merge automatically PRs with destination
                strategyId(1)
              }
            }
          }
      

      Every time I deploy a new Jenkins instance (this can append multiple times per day with Kubernetes), I have to manually update the option in the GUI for every project I have. This is non-practical and time-consuming.
