while fields from a template called global.erb are displayed on Jenkins' global configuration page, I could not yet figure out how to persist or access information given in those fields.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

a good example on how to display a global configuration block, persist submitted data, and use it would be appreciated!

I've managed to get the configuration to save and load after restart.
But, the information is not displayed either, and it can't be accessed by the rest of the plugin.
More details @

I can write a workaround, but it would be ugly as hell.
I tried writing various versions of descriptors, but the problem persists.

Any help appreciated!

+1 I'm trying to write a plugin and struggling with this as well. C'mon, guys. Is it that hard for somebody who knows how this works to write a quick example for us?

Thanks to @n-rodriguez there is now an example of handling global configuration in the jenkins-mysql-job-databases-plugin.
