CircleCI doesn't respect branch filters

circle.yml
2.0

#1

I have multiple build configs, with branch filters setup. Though it seems to trigger the wrong build when merging into my integration branch. It triggers “build” job instead of the “integration” job.

      environment:
        # Customize the JVM maximum heap limit
        JVM_OPTS: -Xmx3200m # max container memory limit is 4G, we should try to keep it below that
                            # if we run out of memory we have to request bigger containers with CircleCI

I would recommend using Workflows. You will be able to add filters for all your jobs.


#3

So I cannot add filters to all jobs without a workflow? Can you elaborate a bit which jobs are treated specially (when not using workflows)?


#4

You can’t have multiple jobs without using Workflows. If you are not using Workflows, you only have one job in the config. Hope this helps.
