Support auto-retrying of failed builds



Something I really miss in CircleCI is to be able to configure auto-retrying of failed builds, because in real life builds do fail sporadically for no good reason (network outages for example). When I was administrating Jenkins some years ago, we set it up to auto-retry failed builds up to a certain number of times, and it saved us a lot of frustration in the long run.


I want this behavior too! Any status on this?


this would be very powerful. esp if a backoff logic can be configured.


Me too! But can you implement feature to retry ONLY failed TESTS not all build?


This is something that you should be able to configure within your test runner. I’m using Java/Maven, and I have my test runner setup to retry tests up to three times in case of intermittent failures.
