A new Team Services build task to queue Jenkins jobs

Team Services sprint 102 introduces a new build task, Jenkins Queue Job.  Now your Team Foundation Server (TFS) builds can integrate with Jenkins to queue and monitor Jenkins jobs.  The Jenkins Queue Job task is cross platform and does not require any additional build agent dependencies.

Add the Queue Jenkins Job Build task to your build steps.

The build task is open sourced, so feel free to use it to create your own build extensions. If you have any suggestions or issues, reach out to us on GitHub.

Note that this task is available today in Team Services and will be available in the next version of Team Foundation Server for on-premises installations.
