[ is an invalid path


  • Using Move/Copy/Promote to move a job, and I see “[ is an invalid path” in the destination field.
  • Cluster-wide job triggers are not working; configuration page show “[ is an invalid path” in the “Job Name” field of the trigger(s)



There are in fact two issue that this message represents:

  1. The incorrectly rendered error
  2. The error itself

In order to resolve the error rendering issue, please update to release or newer. See issue CTR-2560 in the release notes referenced below.

Regarding the error itself see Troubleshooting [jenkins://instanceid/folder/item] is an invalid path
