Build-timeout plugin works only for build steps, not for post-build steps.
And build-timeout plugin never interrupts ircbot-plugin (I don't know anything about ircbot-plugin, but I suspect ircbot-plugin works as post-build step).
Please see JENKINS-16875 for more details.
instant-messaging-plugin may ignore InturruptedException here:
That may cause aborting operations ignored when there are multiple targets configured to send messages, but I'm not sure as I don't use those plugins.
What you can do:
- To update this issue to report a bug that builds cannot be aborted when ircbot (to be exact, instant-messaging) has multiple targets.
- I highly recommend you to describe detailed steps to reproduce the problem to let maintainers of those plugins know what happens.
- To update this issue to request a timeout feature for ircbot-plugin.
- Or, to close this issue as "Not A Defect".
