      Description

      I have Jenkinsfile with specific node allocation and git checkout on that node, but "github organization folder plugin" is starting build on master and checking out repository on master with default timeout values, before starting my Jenkinsfile script, so I am getting timeouts, because my repository is really big and 10min is simply too small.

      my Jenkinsfile looks like this:

      node("*Not_master_node*")
      {
            checkout(
                   [$class: 'GitSCM', 
      			branches: [[name: "${env.BRANCH_NAME}"]], 
      			doGenerateSubmoduleConfigurations: false, 
      			extensions: 
      			[
      				[$class: 'CleanBeforeCheckout'],
      				[$class: 'CheckoutOption', timeout: 180], 
      				[$class: 'CloneOption', 
      					depth: 0, 
      					noTags: false, 
      					shallow: true, 
      					timeout: *180*
      				]
                                ], 
      					submoduleCfg: [], 
      					userRemoteConfigs: [[credentialsId: '...', url: 'https://github.com/...']]]
      				)
      }
      

      I found difference in output between 'github organization' and 'multibranch pipeline' project build output, and this is propably reason why I am getting timeouts in one and on the other one not.

      'github organization':

      and the same fragment of log from 'multibranch pipeline':

      the difference is in fetch line, originally 'multibranch pipeline' has timeout 120min and 'github organization' is using default 10min

            There is no such difference in organization folders.

            Probably a user error. Unless there is a simple way to reproduce this from scratch, and you are not willing to diagnose at the code level, will be closed.

            Well I am using the same repo, the same branch with the same Jenkins file on the same Jenkins server, and 'multibranch pipeline' doesnt have timeouts but 'github organization folder' has timeout while checking out git repo before even starts my script (this is important because this is not a checkout that I am doing in my Jenkins file). I would like to use 'github organization folder' because git triggers are working for those builds and in the other hand those triggers are not working for 'multibranch pipeline', so thats why this is so important to me to have something that will be working in those two points, trigger+checkout without timeouts.

            Cheers

            I have found the difference, in 'multibranch pipeline' configuration page, there is possibility to choose different SCM, and for git I have two options "git" or "github" (propably from two different plugins), one of them: 'github' has the same configuration as 'github organization folder' but the other one 'git' has many other flags, that can be configured, example 'Advanced checkout behaviours: Timeout (in minutes) for checkout', and I am using that one to make it longer than default 10 minutes, this is main reason why I am not getting timeouts in 'multibranch pipeline' project. Please could You expose that kind of configuration for github organization folder'?

            Cheers
