How to put jobs in a category for the Throttle Concurrent Builds plugin for Jenkins

I have downloaded the TCB plugin for Jenkins. I have several builds that run tests. These builds must be run individually, as they access similar files that can cause tests to fail if more than one test build is running. I have been trying to find the place where I put the builds into a “category”, so I can throttle the whole test category down to 1/1. I thought that it might be the Jenkins Views, but that did not do the job. How do you add jobs to a category?

This tag discusses the solution I desire: Jenkins: group jobs and limit build processors for this group. The only problem is that it doesn’t say how to add them to categories.

  • Is there an effort to develop build-oriented file system with automatic change detection of files?
  • Jenkins - conditions between build steps
  • How I “make” git 1.8.2 on debian
  • Spread load evenly by using ‘H * * * *’ rather than ‘5 * * * *’
  • Why did my TeamCity build stop working?
  • Configuring Hudson/Jenkins for staging and production
  • Get the title of a Pull Request from command line
  • unable to run firefox through jenkins?
  • How to optimize testng and seleniums tests
  • Jenkins and docker: uri was not specified
  • Jenkins - git global config not loaded
  • Possibility of caching ls-remote calls

    You set up categories in the global Jenkins configuration (Manage Jenkins -> Configure System) and then assign jobs to categories. See the “Per Project-Category” section in the plugin documentation.
