Trace DSL methods to parent plugins?

Is it possible to list all of the available DSL methods and then trace them back to their corresponding plugin? I utilize Jenkins' files that may also utilize global scripts, I would like to basically determine which plugins are being used\needed. I know there are some 'usage' plugins that look at the config.xml for a particular job but I am interested in figuring out the plugin dependencies in a Jenkins' file and any nested scripts called via that file. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hey Andre,


    Right now the best way I can think of to trace steps that you are using inside of a pipeline to the plugin that is using them would be to take a look at the `pipeline syntax` link inside of a pipeline job and then identify the pipeline steps you are using. The `?` button will usually show which plugin the step comes from and allow you to see which plugins you are using.

    One additional way to look this up would be to go to:


    Then click on the step that you are interested in, such as:


    Then click the link on the page titled:
