JNLP Slaves and Slave Retention Strategies
CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise
A JNLP slave connection is initiated by the slave, a Jenkins master does not manage
them in general.
Thus the Jenkins master will terminate the connection due to
the retention strategy:
Take this slave on-line when in demand and off-line when idle
The slave will then re-establish the connection.
If the retention strategy:
Take this slave on-line according to a schedule
is selected, the JNLP slave connection will be terminated by the Jenkins master
according to the schedule, but the slave will then re-establish the connection.
