Plugin Information

No information for the plugin 'log-trigger' is available. It may have been removed from distribution.

(^-- not published in update center; see download link below)

Trigger downstream builds if a pattern is found in the build console log.


The Log Trigger plugin provides a post-build action that allows Hudson builds to search their console log for a given regular expression and if found, trigger additional downstream jobs.


You can download log-trigger.hpi or build from source. Install log-trigger.hpi into $HUDSON_HOME/plugins (either manually or through the Plugin Manager web interface) and restart Hudson. The plugin is configured by selecting the "Build other projects based on console log" post build action.

      The workaround to the above NullPointerException was to put a value into "Build Delay (in seconds)", which defaults to blank.
