We are considering using the vSphere Cloud plugin for our large scale Jenkins installation, but we are facing the following issue:
- we need to set a couple of environment variables on the slaves being generated
- no "Environment variable" section is available in the GUI for the "Node properties" of the template
- we could manage to create the environment node properties programmatically and the corresponding created slaves have their environment correctly set
- however, when we save the Jenkins global configuration, the environment node properties are gone again
Is it possible to have the possibility to set the environment node properties, the same way the tool node properties can be set?
