    Description

      When a repository is configured to fetch a specific refspec from the upstream repository, all tags are fetched.

      The documentation specifically states that when a refspec is specified, only that refspec will be fetched.

      NOTE: This is not a duplicate of JENKINS-6124. That issue is requesting this to be optional for all cases. This issue is requesting only that the behavior in this specific scenario behave as documented. (i.e. fix the bug)

            Thanks Mark, pre-release plugin worked for me and now plugin is not fetching tags.

            One more observation is "Shallow clone" seems not working always, I am able to point this by looking at console output of my project.
            Yet times I see "--depth 1" with command and not always.

            Is there a way to fix this issue?

            mmlk if there is an issue with shallow clone not consistently remaining a shallow clone, please provide a separate bug report which shows the problem through a series of steps that others can duplicate. Console output is helpful, but is not sufficient evidence that there is a problem.

            That issue is still there.
            It does work whith branches but not with tags.
            With branches I had to configure "Do not fetch tags" to stop fetching all tags.

            But when I do the same for '+refs/tags/ci-uat' it does not find any release for the build as no any tags fetched.
            If I remove ""Do not fetch tags"" it fetches all tags.

            Refspec: +refs/tags/ci-uat
            Honor refspec on initial clone: enabled

            Jenkins: 2.27
            Git plugin: 3.0.0
            Git client plugin: 2.0.0

            Git plugin does not respect 'Honor refspec on initial clone' in case if refs pointed to tags.
            All tags are fetched anyway.
