The Skip Next Build plugin allows you to skip building a job for a short period of time. While you could achieve something similar by disabling the job from the job configure page, you would need to remember to re-enable the job afterwards.
There are two main use cases for this plugin:
If you are going to be taking some external resources that the build requires off-line for maintenance and you don’t want to be annoyed by all the build failure notices.
If you are merging a major feature branch and you want to prevent builds until after the merge is completed.
Refer to Administering Pipeline - Skip Next Build for details on how to use this plugin.
