There has a chance to restart Jenkins with stops the job or once job is completed. But is there any command or process to restart Jenkins without interrupt running job.

1 Answer 1


Jenkins jobs are not in interrupted if you run them on Jenkins agents and not a controller.

What you look for is safeRestart which:

Puts Jenkins into the quiet mode, wait for existing builds to be completed, and then restart Jenkins

Read more here and Jenkins docs.

  • I always wondered, what if my long-running job is executing on an agent and I restart the controller. Will the restarted controller pick up the long-running job continue showing log progress or not?
