      Description

      Hi, As I tested what plugin would be best for authorization. I found that these two plug-ins : 
      "matrix-auth" and "role-strategy" complete each other.

      For example, if the "matrix-auth" plug-in would be able to manage roles it would make it much easier to use it and perform authorization in a large jenkins .
      I am struggling with managing a large jenkins and setting the right permissions per user instead of per role.

      And when I tried the "role-strategy" plug-in I saw that I miss the option to set per folder or any jenkins item the permissions I would like the roles to have there. The "role-strategy" is missing low-level permissions which the "matrix-auth" does give.

       

      My request for improvement is to merge the two plug-ins into one really good which covers all the required things for authorization.

          These are fundamentally different approaches, merging them makes no sense. The difficulty in data migration alone makes this suggestion very unlikely to ever be implemented.

          I think folder-auth might be similar to what you want, and you're always free to develop a better plugin.
