                      Jenkins Master : No Executors , Linux Docker Container

                      Jenkins Slave : One Executor , Windows 10

                     Git Repository Structure :




                     Pipeline Jobs:

                         AfxMfc100Ressources (Jenkinsfile not from SCM, see attachment  afx_mfc100_ressources_DeclarationInJob )

                         ejsoncpp (Jenkinsfile from SCM, see attachment ejsoncpp_Jenkinsfile)


      In pipeline "ejsoncpp" there are following entries in the "Included Regions" field of "Polling ignores commits od certain paths"




      Steps I did:

      1. I was deleting a file "test.txt" in folder "/afx_mfc100_ressources"
      2. Wait of polling intervall in my case about 2 minutes


             Pipeline "AfxMfc100Ressources" was triggered by SCM change.

             Pipeline "ejsoncpp"  was triggered by SCM change, although "/afx_mfc100_ressources"  was not set in the "Included Regions"

      My Conclusion:

      For me it seems that the check of the whitelist ("Included Regions") worked (see bolded text below in polling log) but the trigger happens anyway.

      After that I made another test and I copied the content within the Jenkinsfile of Pipeline "ejsoncpp" directly into the pipeline configuration ( Definition->Pipline Script). I repeated the steps I did before. Then the scenario worked as expected. Only Pipline "AfxMfc100Ressources" was triggered by SCM change. That was really strange!


      Here the change I made in git log:
