I have a job which is set to poll a repository, and also uses the Polling uses certain paths behavior (include) along with the Force polling using workspace behavior.
Polling worked properly when the workspace was already present, but after wiping the workspace it did not trigger a build.
When I made jenkins to poll the repo via calling /git/notifyCommit?url=myrepo I got the following response:
Scheduled polling of chef-diff-app-apt-mirror-manual
but my job was not built
looking into the git polling log for this job I've seen this:
Started on Aug 25, 2015 9:43:02 AM
No workspace is available, so can’t check for updates. (nonexisting_workspace)
Done. Took 2 ms
I've tried to simplify my build to see if that resolves the issue, and realized that removing the "Restrict where this project can be run" settings solves the issue, even thought that in my setup this setting was redundant as the only node available/allowed to run jobs without explicit node restrictions was the same as I was specifying with my label.
After I removed the restrict label and curled /git/notifyCommit again I got a build started and this in my git polling log:
Started on Aug 25, 2015 9:55:41 AM
No workspace is available, so can’t check for updates.
Scheduling a new build to get a workspace. (nonexisting_workspace)
Done. Took 1 ms
Let me know if you need any more info to reproduce the issue.
