[Jenkins-infra] Using Rollbar.com JS error reporting in Blue Ocean plugin

Hi all,

The Blue Ocean plugin is very JavaScript heavy and is prone to problems
that we can only see on the web client.

We want to use Rollbar.com to collect, collate and report web client
errors. It is one of the most common tools that help solve this problem.

There is a PR in review that will add this to every Blue Ocean plugin
screen https://github.com/jenkinsci/blueocean-plugin/pull/286

I got in touch with Daniel Steuernol from Rollbar and asked him if it would
be suitable for use in OSS. He replied saying:

*Hey there, absolutely that would be great, we do have an option that where
you can turn the project on rollbar to be a public project. We don't have a
formal process around this yet, but if you wanted to go this way, we would
put you on the Growth plan (1.5m events/month) to start, and if that isn't
sufficient we could re-assess once we see what the usage is like, another
option would be our partner plan, where if you add our badge to your source
control repo page, and on the site where Rollbar is being used we will add
50,000 events per month. Let me know if you have any other questions and
I'll be happy to help!*

I think that means we can allow anyone in the project to see those error

I asked about anonymised data collection too:

*For people tracking, that's opt-in with Rollbar, so by default we don't
track anything about the user and it has to be specified explicitly. *

I did notice that by default they do collect IP addresses but I was able to
make it specify a fake one ( for all requests (this is reflected in
the PR).

Are their any major objections to using this service?
