Jenkins ACL matrix

J0991

Hello Jenkins Community!

I am documenting our authorization strategy implemented for our Jenkins instance. We currently use a ‘Project-Based’ authorization strategy made available via the Matrix Authorization Strategy plugin for Jenkins. In the formal documentation (as well as the property notes within the Jenkins web UI), state that “This mode is an extension to "Matrix-based security" that allows additional ACL matrix to be defined for each project separately (which is done on the job configuration screen.)”.

My question is; what exactly does ACL stand for? I understand the ACL is the permissions grid, however I’m unable to find exactly what this acronym stands for. ‘Access Control… ?’.

Thanks in advance for any information!

Found the answer to this myself.

In a security context, ACL generally stands for Access Control List.
