Jenkins jobs have config.xml files that store the configuration of that job.
I have a "job manager" job that modifies the configuration of other jobs, but I can't seem to get it to acknowledge the new configuration without restarting Jenkins.
The jenkins-cli.jar command line tool strangely doesn't seem to have an option for this action.
It is possible to edit the configuration through the web interface, and have that save/acknowledged without a restart, so it doesn't seem that it would be a technical impossibility.
My best try was to try and post to the same address that the web interface does
wget --post-file=config.xml --user=joe.shmoe --password=secret01 \ --no-check-certificate \ https://jenkins.company.com/job/myProject/config.xml
...but I get a 403 despite using valid credentials (copy pasted to ensure no typos)
Anyone have any ideas or know something simple that I'm missing?
