      Description

      Why "useDescrIn[Value|Dot][Tooltip|Label]"?

      • I was not sure about the right terms ("Value" vs. "Dot"; "Tooltip" vs. "Label"), it should be just one option, e.g.: "useDescrInValueTooltip"

      Why this issue?

      • Normal/default/useDescr = false:
      • useDescr = true:

      By default build descriptions are "only" shown as tooltips for x-axis labels, i.e. they might be skipped, because not for every build there will be an x-axis label (I think it depends on the number of builds shown).

      When using useDescr = true the x-axis labels are also using the build descriptions which often does not make a lot of sense (cf. truncation of "Long description..." on the right hand side of the second image).

      => I therefore think it would be ideal to have x-axis labels like now/default (e.g. "#26 (Jan24)") and by enabling this optional new flag the tooltip for values/dots in the graph to include the build description: e.g. "Build #26 (Jan 24): First point: 6.131" (please note that the build description is just "First point")

      Frankly I would not even mind loosing the old/previous "useDescr" flag Although/but this would not be backwards compatible...

            This would allow a workaround for JENKINS-851 by setting the build description to the "revision of the product" for each build.
