I use the CloudBees Folders pluging to keep jobs clean. Similar jobs are kept together. When I create a job under a cloud be folder, and it has the post-build step of publishing .... nothing happens.
If I move the job from the folder to the top level Jenkins location, then it works.
- Install Folders pluging
- Create Folder Foo
- Create job in folder Foo-Job that has a post-build action of publishing to another jenkins instance
- Execute Foo-job
The job runs but no publishing is attempted.
- Move the job from Folder Foo to the top level <root> location
- Execute Foo-job from new location
The job runs and now Build Publisher Status shows an attempt at publishing
In this scenario, I have a Private job running on Windows 10 and Public job on a Scientific Linux. They both have the same version of Build-Publisher
