How can non-admin users view the installed plugins

Issue

  • While non-admin users do not have permission to install plugins themselves, they need be able to view the list of installed plugins so they can request any missing plugins to be installed.

Environment

  • Jenkins
  • CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise
  • CloudBees Jenkins Operations Center

Resolution

Without administrative permissions, ordinary users cannot see the “Manage Jenkins” menu which is necessary to view/manage plugins via the Jenkins GUI. There is an alternative method to viewing the installed plugins and versions using the Remote Access API:

http://{JENKINS_URL}/pluginManager/api/xml?depth=1&xpath=/*/*/shortName|/*/*/version&wrapper=plugins
