      Description

      James Dumay added recently description display to blue ocean in JENKINS-41769. Unfortunately it is not rendering build description property in consistent manner. The build property is multi-line and supports HTML content, while its blue ocean presentation expects single-line and plain text.

      I was already using this property, filling it with html tables, links and images, and now at blue ocean it presents itself as HTML source.

      Possible solutions:

      • allow to disable display of description in blue ocean
      • make the blue ocean description rendered in same manner as it is in other parts of Jenkins
      • make the blue ocean description relay on other property, i.e. Summary, Brief, Note

            We have HTML auto-populated build descriptions (with tables and etc). It turns to unreadable tons of text, and we have to scroll 10 screens down to execution graph.

            At least we need an option to switch off build description in Blue Ocean.

            Adding this to the startup options worked to disable display of descriptions for runs in BlueOcean (haven't tried in recent versions):

            -Dblueocean.feature.run.description.enabled=false

            +1 for supporting HTML in the description.  We don't have the complex tables that other mentioned, but just a simple link back to the pull-request.  Really miss having this in Blue Ocean, although at least for a link I can copy/paste it go there.
