Pipeline Run Status

Blue Ocean makes it easy to see the status of the current Pipeline Run by changing the color of the top menu bar to match the status: blue for "In progress", green for "Passed", yellow for "Unstable", red for "Failed", and gray for "Aborted".

Special cases

Blue Ocean is optimized for working with Pipelines in Source Control, but it can display details for other kinds of projects as well. Blue Ocean offers the same tabs for all supported projects types, but those tabs may display different information.

Pipelines outside of Source Control

For Pipelines that are not based on Source Control, Blue Ocean still shows the "Commit Id", "Branch", and "Changes", but those fields are left blank. In this case, the top menu bar does not include the "Edit" option.

Freestyle Projects

For Freestyle projects, Blue Ocean still offers the same tabs, but the Pipeline tab only shows the console log output. The "Rerun" or "Edit" options are also not shown in the top menu bar.

Matrix projects

Matrix projects are not supported in Blue Ocean. Viewing a Matrix project will redirect to the "Classic UI" view for that project.


Each of the tabs of the Run Detail view provides information on a specific aspect of a run.


This is the default tab and gives an overall view of the flow of this Pipeline Run. It shows each stage and parallel branch, the steps in those stages, and the console output from those steps. The overview image above shows a successful Pipeline run. If a particular step during the run fails, this tab will automatically default to showing the console log from the failed step. The image below shows a failed Run.

List of Changes for a Run


The "Tests" tab shows information about test results for this run. This tab will only contain information if a test result publishing step, such as the "Publish JUnit test results" (junit) step. If no results are recorded this table will say that, If all tests pass, this tab will report the total number of passing tests. In the case of failures, the tab will display logs details from the failures as shown below.

Test Results for Unstable Run

When the previous Run had failures and the current run fixes those failures, this tab will note the fixed texts and display their logs as well.

The "Artifacts" tabs show a list of any artifacts saved using the "Archive Artifacts" (archiveArtifacts) step. Clicking on an item in the list will download it. The full output log from the Run can be downloaded from this list.
