Jenkins is no more works with reference git repository. Reference repository is introduced to reduced direct connection to the remote Git server (in our case, Gerrit), However Jenkins still fetching the data from the remote repository post setting up remote repository config.
Added git plugin
Provided repository url and credential in the configure page of Jenkins
Selected, ‘Advanced clone behaviours’ from ‘advanced Behaviors’
Provided path where the bare git repository located. (bare repo created by cloning gerrit with --mirror option)
Triggered the build
Note : Tried deleting the job from /var/lib/jenkins/workspace, but still using remote repo for cloning.
