More information is a good thing. Normally parameterized build input such as notes, Git branches, and bug tracking issues are lost once a build has completed. The only historical reference is in a report. Consequently, this data cannot easily be reused for future builds. Using Jenkins, Groovy and MySQL, this data can persist for the life of a project. This presentation with describe the simple steps taken to save this information for posterity.
