Yesterday I modified a build config to use multiple build steps. Previously, the build was entirely run by means of a shell script which among other things, ran maven commands. I removed a maven step and added it as the first build step followed by the shell script which runs the rest of the build.
Since making this change, I notice that VCS trigger filters are no longer followed. Changes to a source tests directory should be ignored and not trigger a build. But, since adding the build step, it appears that the trigger exclusion no longer works. I have not made any change to the build config other than adding the new build step.
