      Description

      Hi Team,
      We have Jenkins installed in the Windows Server and below are the details.
      • Windows Edition:- Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
      • Java Version:- 1.6.0_25
      • Jenkins Version:- 1.512
      • Subversion Plugin:- 2.4.5
      And we have configured CI build for .Net Applications and for each application we have externals (which is required to compile an application), but SCM Polling should happen only for the actual code but not for externals.
      I know there is an Ignore externals option, but if i enable this option it won't checkout externals, which is actually required.
      This is currently blocking our BAU activities. Immediate response is much appreciated !!!

            This is not a bug, just a feature that does not exist.

            Since apparently nobody needed that in 10 years, I doubt it's of critical importance to the entire user base. Also, there's a trivial workaround in just using the svn command line in a shell script during the build to fetch externals that are otherwise ignored. Therefore reducing priority.

            Please also take the time to read https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/How+to+report+an+issue on how to use this tracker, otherwise nobody may see your wrongly filed issues.
