Re: [RFC] I made a new tabbed Beam view in Jenkins

Very cool. I also didn't realize we had control over the Jenkins "views".

We currently lack a decent dashboard to monitor the build health across Beam jenkins jobs and triage failures; this is a step in the right direction.

I haven't played with Jenkins views before, but it appears they can be managed via the Job DSL similar to our job definitions [1]:

It would be cool to integrate this into our job config in such a way that we could automatically keep the views up-to-date as jobs are added or renamed.

This is really helpful, didn't realize it was possible. Categories and contents look reasonable. I think something like this definitely should be the top-level Beam view.

Hi all,

I made a new view to split Beam builds into tabs: https://builds.apache.org/view/A-D/view/Beam%20Nested/

 - PostCommit tab includes PostCommit and "PreCommit_.*_Cron" because these are actually post-commit jobs; it is a feature not a bug.
 - PreCommit tab includes jobs that have no meaningful history because they are just against PRs, commits, phrase triggering
 - Inventory self-explanatory
 - PerformanceTests self-explanatory
 - All; I didn't want to keep making categories but just send this for feedback

WDYT about making this the top-level Beam view? (vs https://builds.apache.org/view/A-D/view/Beam/)

After that, maybe we could clean the categories so they fit into the tabs more easily with fewer regexes (to make sure things don't get missed). I have read also that if you use / instead of _ as a separator in a name then Jenkins will display jobs as nested in folders automatically. Not sure it actually results in a better view; haven't tried it.
