Pipeline Support in Throttle Concurrent Builds

      Description

      I am looking to use Throttle Concurrent Builds in a WorkFlow. I have jobs that perform automated, scheduled testing, as well as user-initiated jobs. All these jobs compete for the same set of hardware resources to run tests against. I'm currently using BuildFlows for all this and Throttle Concurrent Builds works fine. My problem is that I want to use the WorkFlow plugin for the automated jobs but TCB does not natively support WorkFlows.

      I've read that people dedicate a Node per unit of hardware to solve this problem. That's not a good solution for me since I can have 10-20 hardware units. I've also ready about people using a WorkFlow Stage, but this also doesn't work because of the user-initiated jobs that are outside of the WorkFlow.

      I've seen a presentation by CloudBees that appears to indicate that a WorkFlow can be used with any plugin, even if the plugin does not have native WorkFlow support. Is this possible for TCB and/or is there TCB support planned for WorkFlow?

      Thanks,

      Dave
