Example pipeline script

Important! version 0.9.4 or later

Branch type - Basic usage

Pipeline: Branch type - Basic usage
// Using git without checkout 
pipeline {
  agent any
  parameters {
    gitParameter branchFilter: 'origin/(.*)', defaultValue: 'master', name: 'BRANCH', type: 'PT_BRANCH'
  }
  stages {
    stage('Example') {
      steps {
        git branch: "${params.BRANCH}", url: 'https://github.com/jenkinsci/git-parameter-plugin.git'
      }
    }
  }
}

Important settings:

  • It should be set a default value because initial build must get this information
  • Using git should be set a branchFilter as 'origin/(.*)' (origin is a remote server name)
Parameter type
  • PT_TAG
  • PT_BRANCH
  • PT_BRANCH_TAG
  • PT_REVISION
  • PT_PULL_REQUEST

Important: If you need use other type (other then branch) parameter, you must use git within checkout

Default Value

Selected Value

Use repository

Remember: You don't set a git repository into the plugin, this plugin using git repositories which are defined in project in SCM section!

If in the task are defined multiple repositories, this option specifies which the repository is taken into account on getting data.
If the option is not defined, is taken a first defined repository.
This option is a regular expression, which is compared to the 'Repository URL'.

You can define the multiple SCM for few way, you can use Multiple SCMs Plugin, specified many 'Repository URL' in one SCM  or define them in pipeline.

Consider an example based on two repositories:


Pipeline: Complex example
pipeline {
    agent any
    parameters {
        gitParameter branchFilter: 'origin.*/(.*)', defaultValue: 'master', name: 'BRANCH_A', type: 'PT_BRANCH', useRepository: '.*exampleA.git'
        gitParameter branchFilter: 'origin.*/(.*)', defaultValue: 'master', name: 'BRANCH_B', type: 'PT_BRANCH', useRepository: '.*exampleB.git'
        
    }
    stages {
        stage('Example') {
            steps {
                git branch: "${params.BRANCH_A}", url: 'https://github.com/klimas7/exampleA.git'
                git branch: "${params.BRANCH_B}", url: 'https://github.com/klimas7/exampleB.git'
            }
        }
    }
}

After initial run you get 

Example when 'Use repository' is not set:

Pipeline: Use repository is not set
pipeline {
    agent any
    parameters {
        gitParameter branchFilter: 'origin.*/(.*)', defaultValue: 'master', name: 'BRANCH', type: 'PT_BRANCH'
    }
    stages {
        stage('Example') {
            steps {
                git url: 'https://github.com/klimas7/exampleA.git'
                git url: 'https://github.com/klimas7/exampleB.git'
            }
        }
    }
}
