Distributing jobs to different clouds

Is it possible to distribute the jobs to different clouds based on if they have free slots?
A new decision would need to be made when a worker reports a slot has been freed.

Kind regards

    Hi Noel,

    Yes, you can have a few clouds under the same group with distribution strategy. It's under "Advanced" section on cloud settings.

    Then when you have a group defined on cloud settings you can target cloud group in your builds instead of cloud name itself.

    Hello Feodor,

    Thank you for your response. The problem solved itself and AppVeyor behaves as expected now. Previously, when I opened this issue, AppVeyor wanted to run all jobs on one cloud only and failed the ones where no image was available.
