I am trying to do a poc of jenkins pipeline as code. Is there a way to explicitly define the names for the pipeline jobs that get from Jenkinsfile? I also want to add some descriptions for the jobs

Following script in pipeline will do that(this requires appropriate permissions)

item = Jenkins.instance.getItemByFullName("originalJobName")

item.setDescription("This description was changed by script")

You can rename selected job through jenkins UI by following these steps:

job>configure>Advanced Project Options>Display Name

Other way is to rename the directory on the Jenkins/hudson server and then restart the Jenkins.
