This plugin delegates scheduling decisions to external scheduling service.
This plugin monitors jenkins queue and sends it to external scheduler periodically as well as obtaining job-to-node mapping. It propagates this mapping back to the Jenkins scheduler.
Plugin is inactive unless URL of external scheduler is provided in global configuration (Choose custom scheduler/Delegate scheduling to REST service/REST server url). Plugin will try to connect to the remote scheduler and verify the connection.
