      Description

      While Jenkins automatically downloads dependencies of plugins, it doesn't tell you when you have configured an invalid plugin configuration by disabling plugins: Features simply don't work.

      Ideas:


      New Administrative Monitor:

      • Tell users about mandatory plugin dependencies that are missing or disabled
      • Tell user when implied (pre core extraction) dependencies are missing or disabled

      Enhance plugin descriptions to state dependencies, maybe color-code when they're missing or disabled.


      Show a confirmation dialog before disabling a plugin when a user clicks the check box.
