How can I turn on HTML display of Jenkins job descriptions for a single master?


  • We would like to allow one of our masters to use a unique Markup Formatter such
    as HTML without allowing this across all of our masters.



Generally, allowing the Operations Center to manage all security settings across
every connected master is desired to reduce the administrative burden of managing
multiple masters or simply to ensure consistency across masters.

However, the CloudBees Jenkins Operations Center is flexible and can accommodate
different security needs between connected masters. An Operations Center administrator simply
needs to configure Global Security to allow individual masters the ability to ‘opt out’.
In so doing, the Markup Formatter can be set at the individual Master’s level.

Opt-out the master from the Operation Center configuration (<cjoc_url>/configureSecurity)

  • Select the checkbox “Allow client masters to opt-out” under Client master security:

Allow client masters to opt-out

  • Then “Opt-out” the master from the Operations Center configuration by going to the master configuration page on the Operation Center
    (<cjoc_url>/job/<master_name>/configure) and selecting the checkbox “Opt-out” under Security Setting Enforcement:


Set up the custom configuration on the master (<jenkins_url>/configureSecurity)

Now security settings can be set individually for this master and we can specify
the formatter to use. In our markup formatter example, you this is done browsing <jenkins_url>/configureSecurity and selecting the markup formatter under Markup Formatter:
