Yes, you can configure user permissions per individual jobs.
Jenkins allows you to give different permissions to a user across different jobs,using "Project-based Matrix Authorization strategy".
Follow the steps to do this, 

  •  From the jenkins dashboard,click on Manage Jenkins.

  •  under Manage jenkins->Configure Global Security->select Enable security.

  •  Under the Authorization section, select the "Project-based Matrix Authorization Strategy"

  •  Add the particular user and assign the appropriate permissions.

  • And then to assign Job specific permissions :

    • Go to the job (say job1) for which you need to assign permissions.

    • Click Configure->under the general tab->Enable Project-based Security.

    •  Add the particular user (say user1) and assign the required permissions.

This is useful when specific jobs shouldn't be accessed by certain users.

This doesn't really stop users/developers viewing the other jobs, Is there any way that allow user user just to view and build a particular job


I am not sure it will work or not. But you can try once.

  •  install the Authorize Project plugin.
  • Go to manage jenkins->configure global security->access control for builds->Run as user who triggered->save
  • Create one job
  • Go to configuration-> build environment->bind one user who can run the job.
Now that particular user can only handle that job.

Project-based Matrix Authorization Strategy is an authorization method using which we can define which user or group can do what actions on which job. This gives us fine-grained control over user/group permissions per project.
