TFS random builds on changesets

We are using TFS Repository plugin for over a month now. We are observing that automatic builds are picked randomly. Most of the times it doesn't triggers build after checkin.

Below are the configuration :

Trigger Type : Polling the repository for change

Polling Strategy : Periodically

Polling Frequency : 180

Please suggest.

It seems to work now. Will let you know if it recurs.

+1 -> I see the same behavior

In practice, that make the plug-in not usable, since the continous build is there to be "automated".

Maybe there is a SVM neutral plug-in to "cancel" the build if no change is done. Like this we could setup a build each 60 seconds, and had this other plug-in cancel the build if no change is detected.

Could you specify steps to reproduce? I've made 7 plans, each with 2 jobs and 2 repositories. And it triggers fine. Also I've tried various combinations with no luck.

Hi guys,

I'm investigating it. Please, watch this issue on the Bitbucket.

Could you specify steps to reproduce? I've made 7 plans, each with 2 jobs and 2 repositories. And it triggers fine. Also I've tried various combinations with no luck.

I saw it failing many times, but today, a single change expected to trigger 14 different jobs did work.

I had very similar behavior in 1.1.5. After restarting Bamboo, everything magically started working... Nothing in the logs.

Will observe if it happens again.
