Support console annotations and log stuff

      Blue Ocean 1.3, Blue Ocean 1.4 - beta 1

      Description

      Console annotations will be used where appropriate

      Jenkins stores log output from jobs. Jenkins also provides several facilities to modify those logs, either as lines are written or as they are retrieved. For Blue Ocean, we needed to decide which of those facilities would be supported.

      Blue Ocean is likely to use this subsystem for notes such as timestamps where additional data is stored for a loglines but will not use notes that dictate the use of generated HTML.

      See Supporting Console Notes and Annotators in Blue Ocean.

      Original request
      When using Blue Ocean UI, the console output is just plain text, wheras the classic UI had the option of plain text but by default showed a smarter console output that would, for instance, contain clickable url links to downstream jobs, or archived artifacts. That would be a very cool thing to have again in the Blue Ocean UI.

            James Nord links to triggered bulds I think has a ticket specific for that as that is a core bit of functionality, but yeah...

            yes we need a specific ticket for timestamp support (links is already in there in some fashion, or as a ticket/roadmap item). 

            The design of annotators is just so terrible... really I don't know how it happened.

            Depends on your PoV whether this is a “core” bit of functionality. Certainly the fact that such a link is printed, and when, is not core; it is implemented here in a plugin. Now you could generically support any HyperlinkNote based on its serial form, and get automatic support for a broad array of simple links. But certainly it is not maintainable for Blue Ocean code to apply every kind of text markup to arbitrary plugin output.
