Do a "plugins info" at the agent prompt. It will give a list like this:
Plugin Name: RHQServer

Now run the "Get Info On All Plugins" ops in the GUI. This will list plugins without the field "Plugin Name" (i.e. the short name).
Also the ops "Get info on a specific plugin" ops expects the long name "rhq-server-...jar" while on the agent prompt the "discovery --plugin=<plugin name>" expects the short name ("RHQServer")
This bug was previously known as http://jira.rhq-project.org/browse/RHQ-653
when you are looking at the other "info on agents" BZ, can you please also have a look here?

message: [BZ 536287] - (RHQ-653) Agent "Get Info On All Plugins" operation does
not return the short name of a plugin (and is inconsistent with
the agent prompt) - Returning also the display name and the
short name of plugin for both the retrieveAllPluginInfo and the
retrievePluginInfo agent operations. Now it is more consistent
with the prompt command for agent (plugins info) and the short
plugin name can be used elsewhere.
