I want to display Japanese Characters in the description of a Job


It is possible to display Japanese characters in the description. However there is a problem during Form Submission and you cannot use the UI. To update the job description, you need to use the CLI/REST API to update the job.

  1. Example using the Jenkins CLI:

     java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -s https://localhost:8080/ update-job my-job < my-config.xml
  2. Example using the REST API:

     curl -v -X POST \
         --data-binary @my-config.xml \
         -u "user:$token" \
         -H 'Content-Type: application/xml' \
