What does Reload Configuration from Disk do?


What does Reload Configuration from Disk do?  When should I use it?  Is it necessary after a Jenkins restart?

  • Reload Configuration from Disk simply refreshes Jenkins configuration files and directory structure.  
  • This command should be used when a change is made to Jenkins and its environment outside of the UI, such as editing config.xml files from the command line or moving jobs between folders from the command line.  
  • It is not necessary to do this after a restart.  Jenkins inherently does this on it’s own on start up.
