      Description

      The description of a build can be set via currentBuild.description = '....'. However, I am unable to set a line break. Neither using <br> nor using \n.

       

      The description should ideally use the Markup Formatter that is defined in the Jenkins Security Settings.

            Kevin Grüneberg the design we have only caters for a single line on both the messages column and the pipeline result details header. Allowing arbitrary amounts of formatting and information there would significantly impact the design. Ill be honest, we are unlikely to change that in the next year. However sometime next year we are planning a redesign of those screens so we could consider it then.

            Thanks for reporting.
