Allows a job to be executed when no other jobs are running.

Possible uses

Execute a backup job: because backup-plugin cannot be scheduled, then I have created my own Jenkins backup script. To run it from Jenkins I crated a 'maintenance' job that must execute when there are no other job running, so this plugin can help perform this backup procedure.

How it works

When this option is enabled, then for every build one pre-build and one post-build steps are executed:

pre-build steps:

  1. The plugin will initiate a shutdown mode which means that no other jobs can be started.
  2. It waits until every job except this one has finished, unless it is indicated not to wait through optional flag. 
  3. Then it starts to execute the job.

post-build steps (executed always even if the build is not succesful):

  1. Jenkins shutdown mode is canceled
