Repository runs more parallel jobs as it should

We have set via UI to run maximum 3 jobs in parallel, but AppVeyor seems to ignore this setting and run all of our 5 jobs on conan-qt

Are we doing something wrong or is this a bug?

    There is an appveyor.yml in the project repo. Max number of parallel jobs should be set there:

    max_jobs: 3

    Shouldn't the UI settings be applied as long as there is no explicit setting in the appveyor.yml for the setting in question, in this case max_jobs?

    Currently, only environment variables and deployment settings defined on UI override those ones in appveyor.yml.

    So, what is the point of the "Max jobs" field on ?

    It works when there is no appveyor.yml in the repository and you configure project via UI.

    Ok. I had no idea it was possible to have no appveyor.yml.
