 Yes, you can pass the property via the Jenkins parameter.  The property name is personalBuild, but it is a string property not a boolean one.  But you should be able to manipulate it once you get it onto the Jenkins side.

EDIT:  I just realized that the 'b' wasn't capitalized, I tried again and it interprets correctly with the boolean parameter too.  So either one, but make sure its personalBuild!  The parameters are case sensitive.

Hi Donald,

Unfortunately, there currently is no property to distinguish personal builds.  However, this feature is in the plan we are currently working on.

246731: HPI: Request a personal build from Hudson/Jenkins is a child of 252582: [CCM] Improve Jazz SCM and Build integration with Jenkins - production quality.

If you haven't seen it, the richest integration you can currently achieve with RTC 4.0.1 and Jenkins is described in

I hope this helps for now,

I stand corrected.  Spencer's answer is, of course, correct.  ;-)  After following the steps in  I was able to add a boolean value parameter, named "personalBuild", to the Jenkins job and it was properly passed into the ant task, just like buildResultUUID.  Thanks Spencer.

Great - thanks - tried it and it works
