Question about running a new build on AppVeyor when there is a job for a specific branch.

My appveyor.yml has four jobs and two jobs have this setting to trigger when it is a master branch.

Example of a job

  - matrix:
        - job_name: Build Test App
        - master

This is working when I push my commit in my feature branch (not master) to bitbucket. Only two jobs without the branches setting are executed as expected.

However, if I manually rebuild on AppVeyor page, a new build will trigger all jobs regardless of the setting of branches.

Is there a way to ensure the jobs are triggered correctly when I manually rebuild?

    You mean you are not getting the same behaviour with "Re-build commit" button or "New build"?

    Hi Feodor

    Correct. All jobs are triggered when using "Re-build commit" button and "New build" button.

    One of the ways to workaround that issue is to "re-deliver" webhook request on GitHub repository.

    Sorry. I didn't mention earlier. I'm using Bitbucket. I don't see an option for "re-deliver" on Bitbucket.

    Do you know if there is another workaround which might work with Bitbucket?

    You can do some trivial changes to the code and push updates just to kick off a new build.

    Thanks Feodor. I haven't got a solution for this yet.
    However, I will address later if I need to.

    If I make it working, I will share a solution.
