      Description

      We have a job based on polling git-lab. Something went wrong in one day and it has left a .git/config.lock file in the workspace.

      From that moment on, all git polling were happening but errored with the config file issue:

      Done. Took 70 ms

      No changes

      Please note that the final conclusion: "No changes"

       

      This is not the desired outcome as the polling error should have been notified, maybe by the methods defined in the job configuration.

      Possible Solution (based on GitHub Webhooks Warning)

      When alerts on failure of background tasks is implemented in the git plugin, it could be done through a similar user interface technique as is used by GitHub webhooks. A number appears in the top right of the Jenkins interface. When that number is clicked, a dialog appears that includes a "View" button that would open a page that lists all the problems of that type. The "Dismiss" button would clear the contents of the page that lists all the problems of that type.
