For example I have clicked on retry option at build number 2 in Jenkins pipeline view, where as build number 3 gets start and build number 4 also gets start and awaits at pending state.

Why the build number 4 is getting started parallelly and how to avoid this one.

Have you tried unticking the "allow concurrent builds" option?

  • I could not find this option anywhere in jenkins pipeline configure section. Could you please guide me where I need to check

  • It's usually within the job config. Above the "build triggers " section or something. Or you can add it inside the pipeline by doing options { disableConcurrentBuilds() }

@shree, I have also seen this scenario in localhost, later I have found that there is an issue with the google chrome browser, somehow it is not compatible with that, please try it with another Firefox browser and check.
