How are artifacts versions managed?

I have read Sharing artifacts Sharing artifacts between build plans section and been wondering how the artifacts versions are managed. 

For example, I have two build plans. Plan A produces a jar file upon each run, and B produces a war file upon ear run. Then I have a master plan which downloads the artifacts of A & B, and then generate a ear file. 

A & B are triggered automatically on each code commit, while master plan is run manually. In this case each time I run the master plan, it always gets the latest version of artifacts from A & B, doesn't it? Is there a way to specify the version of artifacts to be downloaded?

Any comments / suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Eric,

As stated in the documentation you mentioned:

The artifact from the most recent successful build will be used. If there are no successful builds from the artifact-producing plan or the artifacts have expired, the artifact-consuming job will fail.

So yes, the "Artifact Download task" will always use the war file produced by the latest plan A and B successful builds.

This is the current behavior but there is an open improvement request asking for the ability to download shared artifacts from specific builds:

I encourage you to vote on and watch the Improvement Request to increase its visibility and ensure you're kept in the loop with any future updates. 

cheers
