QuickBuild utilizes the Git command (git) to interact with remote Git repository. If this command is not in system path, you will need to specify location of the command by configuring Git plugin as below:

Further more, Git command (git) location can be specified on a per-node basis by following below steps:

  1. Open Git plugin setting page and define the Git path property as:
