queue build job with a customRevision, although concurrent_builds=1


i want to issue a build for a specific plan and revision externally. I use this:

curl -X POST -u user:pwd "http://localhost:8085/ajax/runParametrisedManualBuild.action?os_authType=basic&planKey=BUILD_JOB1&customRevision=1234"

which works fine. Now, I want to issue a second build, but there's already a build running. The system refuses to do so, but I can work around this, by setting the conurrent builds setting something higher than 1 for this plan, although I've no agents configured. By doing that, the second build gets queued.

But this feels like a hack. For example, I want a second plan in my system, that should be "serialized", that is, builds depend on each other's results. For such jobs, I want to explicitly set concurrent_build=1, but still be able to queue builds.

Maybe there's a different command I can use?

Unfortunately not. You can't queue builds if you're above concurrency limit.
