    Description

      There is no option to fetch and prune tags on all submodules in Jenkins.

      In our environment, it happens in rare cases that tags are force-pushed on the main repo and on submodules. We did not find any way to reflect the actual tags before build using Jenkins, except with a full repository wipeout.

      Also we have a case where a new tag on the submodule repository was not present on our builder at build time.

      We tried using a command such as git fetch --prune origin "refs/tags/:refs/tags/ in the build steps, but this fails as the credentials cannot be used at that stage.
