The Jenkins plugin provides two type of UI elements.
EntityLatestJenkinsRunCard displays the latest runs for an entity.
This card can be added to component dashboards.
EntityJenkinsContent presents a job folder in Jenkins and jobs it contains. It also display details of each job within the folder.
This component can be added as a tab to component layouts.
The Jenkins plugin uses
jenkins.io/job-full-name annotation to determine the correct GitHub organization folder and job name within your Jenkins instance.
You can configure it as follows:
// catalog-info.yaml metadata: annotations: jenkins.io/job-full-name: [github-organization-project-name/job-name]
More information how to configure the plugin for your component can be found from the plugins documentation.
