When to use it
- If you'd like to stop the mess with downstream / upstream jobs chains definitions
- When you want to add full hierarchy of Jenkins jobs that will be executed in sequence or in parallel
- Add context to your buildflow implementing parameter inheritance from the MultiJob to all its Phases and Jobs. Phases are sequential, whilst jobs inside each Phase are parallel
How to use it
After installing this plugin you will be able to do the following:
- When creating new Jenkins jobs you will have an option to create MultiJob project.
- In the build section, this job can define phases that contain one or more jobs.
- All jobs that belong to one phase will be executed in parallel (if there are enough executors on the node)
- All jobs in phase 2 will be executed only after the jobs in phase 1 are completed etc.
Phases are used to execute many jobs in parallel, whilst Phases are sequential.
For example you can have a common complement in phase 1, dependent components in phase 2, a deployment in phase 3 and so on and so forth.
Example plugin configuration
For example we create a MultiJob project called jenkins-multijob-inherent that contains 3 multijob phases:
This job manages the building and deployment of the Tikal multijob plugin at phase 1.
Afterwards it downloads the snapshot version of jenkins and packs it again with Tikal multijob plugin that was created at phase 1.
Finally at phase 3, it deploys the jenkins together with the multijob plugin to a deployment machine and executes selenium tests, to check the product and shutdown jenkins.
MultiJob Phases definition screenshot:
You can also see an hierarchical view of the multijob project:
Since version 1.11:
1. control build success criteria based on job status:
2. Disable a job within a phase - the use case is when you want to exclude a specific job from executing during a specific execution (well, if you wanted to remove completely -> you would just remove it...).
* Configure multiple SCM's in parent job for multiple change polling - to be continued
