Build periodically and Poll SCM never "force build"

Michael Powell

Okay, I have run a couple of scenarios and I am fairly certain that Jenkins is checking whether there were any changes, REGARDLESS whether I am building periodically or Polling SCM.

The only thing I can figure is that "force build" is some how a function of "Check-out Strategy"? That is, if I tell Jenkins to Build periodically and Always check out a fresh copy, then I get a force build?

As with any CI, sounds like I could have a couple of project configurations, one for periodic (daily, twice a day) force builds, and one for incremental Poll SCM builds.
