Keep release build artifacts forever

    Details

      Description

      I just recently learned that "keeping a build forever" does not necessarily mean that it's artifacts are also saved forever.
      Right now I try to keep the number of saved artifacts to a minimum by selecting the "Discard all but the last successful/stable artifact to save disk space"-option, but this also deletes the artifacts of old release builds!

      It would be nice to have an option in the release build section that allows me to keep the artifacts for all release builds, no matter if the "Discard all but the last successful/stable artifact to save disk space"-option or the "Discard Old Builds"-option are selected or not.

      I have not found an easy workaround for this so far, that's why I created this issue.
