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 hudson backup script. To run it from hudson 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. # hudson shutdown mode is activated (no new jobs will start)
  2. wait until all current running jobs (except the one that is executing) have completed* then the configured build steps are executed

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

  1. hudson shutdown mode is canceled
