      Description

      Hi,

      I have an important issue with Matrix Jobs.

      I have an 'e-mail notification' Post-build step for several Matrix Jobs on our Jenkins server.

      When the master Job (which triggers the matrix jobs) fail (e.g. checkout the subversion repository fails), then no e-mail notification is sent.

      This way we never get notified when for example a weekly build is failing.
      If we don't check Jenkins manually, we maybe miss this for a long time because we think the Jobs build correctly!

      I think we should be able to:
      1. Add Post-build steps to the "master" Job
      2. OR Mark a post-build step to be executed by the "master" Job also...

          Matrix Projects has their own publisher called "MatrixAggregator". Common publishers cannot be used, because the matrix job is a "lightweight" task, which can be executed without free executors.

          In the case of e-mail notifications, you could use "Extended E-mail" plugin, which provides such functionality. FlexiblePublish plugin also allows to call common publishers on matrix parent jobs
