Is there a way to make Jenkins where it will notify people when it
uploads or just have a page where it says "Jenkins is uploading please
wait a while and try this download again." This way we don't get
Quick answer is there's a way to make Jenkins do anything, longer answer is I don't know of an easy way that's trivial (or I would have done it already) Ideally Jenkins would upload to a non-public ('incoming') dir and trigger some operation on the server to link / copy the files when the upload succeeds, I just didn't come up with an easy way to make that happen yet.
I run the server, and it can run arbitrary PHP / Perl / cron scripts, it's just a question of what is low complexity to set up. The SCP uploader plugin for Jenkins is quite simple so I can't do much with that - I can run another build action *after* it, the question is what it should do.
