Github Builds won't Build if no new commits #4113

Michaelcc73 ·

Is there a way to ensure that a build runs in certain, even if no new commits are detected in a GitHub repository? Even when building a configuraiton manually it seems that QB will not honor the request.

We recently had an issue where a change was detected, but the build agents were down so the build couldn't run. Once we got the agents up, the build wouldn't run because QB no longer detected any changes. We've seen this in the past for other issues that have occurred in our build pipeline.

Below is the log output from the QB server when this occurred. As you can see, we hit an error on 2 configurations because there were no applicable nodes available to run the build on. The nodes were started, but the server never registered the new commits again, so no builds kicked off.

Please edit advanced setting to disable the option "queue changed branches only" in this case. This option is added for performance reasons in order not to pile a lot of build requests even if there are no changes in pull requests.
