You may create multiple build steps using this plugin but you can only create one post build action.

Running Build Step

The build step configured with this plugin will be executed when the build task is executed. The full output of the model executions stats are stored in the build task Console Output.

Failure from the model execution will cause build task to fail just like any other build step. Check the build task Console Output for the details of the failure.
