I have find out that I have a job A which will trigger job B to build if A is successful, in the dependencies tab. I can add child job.
Build Plan --> Plan Configuration --> Dependencies --> Child job
But for my use case I did not find the specific job in the drop down list which I would like to trigger. Does this mean I cannot trigger that type of job or I need some more configuration?
Hi @Zhenye Na
The dependencies section is not used to trigger jobs, but plans. Just to make sure we have the same common ground, let me share some concepts:
This is how a plan looks like:
In other words, a plan has stages, which have jobs, and these ones have tasks.
A given plan can have one or multiple child plans. When a build finishes with a success, any plan configured as a child plan will be triggered right after it.
It is possible that you are trying to add another plan as a child plan but you don't have permission to run the other plan and that is blocking you to add it as a child plan. Another option is that you are trying to select specific jobs when you should be selecting plans and that is the reason you can't find the jobs you are looking for.
Does that make sense?
