Scan Multibranch Pipeline Without Build

Go to the configuration settings of your multibranch pipeline and in the “Branch Sources” section click on the “Add property” and select the property, named “Suppress automatic SCM triggering“.

This will prevent Jenkins from triggering the builds every time it discovers new branches.

NoTriggerBranchProperty: Suppresses builds due to either BranchIndexingCause or BranchEventCause. The purpose of this property is to prevent triggering builds resulting from the detection of changes in the underlying SCM.
