--- Please fill out the fields below. ---
Package name: jenkins-parametrized-trigger-plugin
Upstream Author: Kohsuke Kawaguchi and others
Description: Triggers new Jenkins builds when a build has completed
This plugin lets you trigger new builds when your build has completed, with
various ways of specifying parameters for the new build.
You can add multiple configurations: each has a list of projects to trigger,
a condition for when to trigger them (based on the result of the current
build), and a parameters section.
The parameters section can contain a combination of one or more of
* a set of predefined properties
* properties from a properties file read from the workspace of the triggering
* the parameters of the current build
* "Subversion revision": makes sure the triggered projects are built with the
same revision(s) of the triggering build. You still have to make sure those
projects are actually configured to checkout the right Subversion URLs.
The parameter section is itself pluggable, and other plugins can contribute
other sources of parameters.
This triggering mechanism can be used both as a post-build step or as a build
step, in which case you can also block for the completion of the triggered
builds. This lets you create a "function call" like semantics.
