Allow the paremetrised "Build" button to instead say "Deploy" instead of "Build" if the user wishes

      Description

      Just want to say thanks so much for this plug-in and the last feature around custom text, it has been so helpful for organizing build parameters to make them readable for end users.
      This got me thinking as Jenkins is now used for Builds as well as continuous delivery, it would be great if we could toggle the text on the parametrized build button between "Build" and "Deploy" depending on what we are using the build parameters for as lot's of users use them for deployments. It really would be a nice feature and given you have managed to manipulate the build parameters page I thought you may be the person to make it happen. Also it would probably mean this plug-in is used by everyone using Jenkins for continuous delivery which would be a nice bonus.

          No problem! And thanks for the kind words!

          My concerns with this request are both philosophical and practical:

          1. Philosophical: It really isn't withing the purview of a "Parameter Separator" plugin to start modifying other elements of the Jenkins UI. I think it would be weird, and would be annoying to remember to maintain.
          2. Practical:
          a. The "Build" button appears to be pretty hard-coded; even if customizable, could potentially lead to an internationalization nightmare.
          b. There is already a major push to refresh the Jenkins UI in general, and this feature request might be better suggested to those folks.

          That said, I agree with the desire. Where I work we also have deploy jobs, and it would be nice to have it contextualized. It's likely be "cleaner" if there were a dedicated job type perhaps, although that would be a lot of overhead to just change the label text on a button!

          I will look into seeing if I can do something, either with this plugin, or another plugin.

          Not going to fix this. There is no good way to tweak this text, as there is no extension point to change the button text.

          Going to close again, as Won't Fix. I may change it some day, but it doesn't look straightforward at all.

          I have removed the current assignee, he unlikely plans to work on it after 4 years. Any contributions will be welcome

          I mentioned in my comment, this seems more like a job-level and probably core change. So I will truly close as won't fix
