Subject Jenkins Github PR integration - Support for whitelisting?
Date Mon, 25 Sep 2017 07:02:31 GMT
Hello Build Team,

I'm one of the committers of the Apache Ant project[1]. We use Jenkins 
hosted by the Infra team at builds.apache.org for automated triggering 
of specific Jenkins jobs for pull requests that are submitted at the 
(read-only) mirrors of the project hosted at github[2]. The Jenkins job 
is a typical job that follows the steps noted in this article[3]. Things 
work fine and here's the Jenkins job we have[4].

However, a couple of things that seem to be missing when compared to the 
"official" Jenkins Github integration plugin[5] are:

     1. Ability to whitelist users who can submit a PR - this helps to 
avoid random users from creating (potentially malicious) PRs which 
trigger a job against Jenkins

     2. Ability to issue a "retest this please" command (by whitelisted 
users) as a comment on the PR to auto-trigger a new job for the PR.

Are these features already available in the one that's hosted at 
builds.apache.org and if so, is there some documentation I can follow? 
If not, is there any workaround for #1 or any plans to support these
