Jenkins drop down list of build names of other job

I would like to list out all successfull build names in the drop down menu that got built by another job. I have seen the links to get all list of build ids in the drop down menu with parametrized and copy artifacts plugins. But I need to list with the actual build names set by Build Setter in the other job. Currently i am able to get list with #55,54,53,52.. etc., But I need to list with build names assigned to these builds that got set by build setter.

    RunList<?> builds = otherJob.getBuilds().overThresholdOnly(Result.SUCCESS)
    def list = builds.limit(5).collect { it.number }

    I can retrieve the build name (set with the Build Name Setter plugin) with the “displayName” property of the build object.

    Here is my working example, as a “Dynamic Choice Parameter” groovy plugin:

    def jobname="build-my-project"
    def list=[]
    hudson.model.AbstractProject<?, ?> otherJob = jenkins.model.Jenkins.getInstance().getItemByFullName(jobname, hudson.model.AbstractProject.class)
    hudson.util.RunList<?> builds = otherJob.getBuilds().overThresholdOnly(hudson.model.Result.SUCCESS)
    builds.limit(20).each{run -> list.add(run.displayName) }

    I hope this helps!
