Allowing same type of parameter for triggered build more than once seems redundant

      Description

      While working on JENKINS-7377 I noticed that it's redundant and confusing to allow the same type of parameter for a triggered build more than once.
      For example, right now it's possible to specify "Current Build Parameters", or "Subversion Revision" two or more times.
      The only type where it might make sense is "Parameters from properties file".

      I think for every type of parameters a simple checkbox is sufficient.

      I'll try to make the necessary changes and open a pull request, but appreciate comments or criticism.

            All parameter sources are only supported once now, i.e. it's not possible to specify multiple property files anymore?

            Yes, that's the only drawback with this solution. Do you have a use-case where you need to specify multiple property files?

            Hi. I have several Jobs that use multiple 'parameters from properties file' parameters. I would really like to see this functionality put back in.

            Dear all,

            I support several teams for which it is really annoying to not be able to add several property files.
            So please could you either :

            • let the possibility to add several times property file type
            • or have a single property file type but allow to give a comma separated list of files.

            This has already been fixed (see JENKINS-15834) and it's available in version 2.17 of the Parameterized Trigger Build Plugin.
            You can specify a comma separated list of property files now.
