2.18Minimum Jenkins requirement: 2.150.1ID: workflow-basic-steps

Commonly used steps for Pipelines.

A component of Pipeline Plugin.

Changelog

2.18 (Jun 04, 2019)

You must update Pipeline Groovy Plugin to version 2.70 along with this update.

  • JENKINS-41854: Refresh references to files on agents when an agent reconnects. Fixes some cases where a dir step would fail with a RequestAbortedException due to a ChannelClosedException if the agent had disconnected earlier during the build even if the agent was connected to Jenkins at the time of failure.
  • JENKINS-57537: The buildResult  and stageResult  parameters added to the catchError step in version 2.16 of this plugin did not work correctly in a Declarative Pipeline.

2.17 (Jun 03, 2019)

  • Released incorrectly, do not use.

2.16 (May 14, 2019)

This plugin now requires Jenkins 2.138.4 or newer.

  • JENKINS-45579/JENKINS-39203: Use a new API provided by Pipeline API Plugin version 2.34 to create new steps to set the build result to UNSTABLE in a way that allows visualizations such as Blue Ocean to identify the stage and step that set the build result to UNSTABLE.
    • Note: In order for stage-related results to be visualized differently in Blue Ocean, you must update to Pipeline: Graph Analysis 1.10 or newer.
    • The catchError step has been updated with new optional parameters:
      • message: String -  A message that will be printed to the build log if an exception is caught. The message will be associated with the stage result if the stage result is set and may be shown in visualizations such as Blue Ocean in the future.
      • buildResult: String - What the overall build result should be set to if an exception is caught. Use null or SUCCESS to not set the build result. Defaults to FAILURE.
      • stageResult: String - What the stage result should be set to if an exception is caught. Use null or SUCCESS to not set the stage result. Defaults to SUCCESS.
      • catchInterruptions: boolean - If true, certain types of exceptions that are used to interrupt the flow of execution for Pipelines will be caught and handled by the step. If false, those types of exceptions will be caught and immediately rethrown. Examples of these types of exceptions include those thrown when a build is manually aborted through the UI and those thrown by the timeout step. Defaults to true.
    • The following two steps have been added:
      • unstable(message: String): Prints a message to the log and sets the overall build result and the stage result to UNSTABLE. The message will be associated with the stage result and may be shown in visualizations such as Blue Ocean in the future.
      • warnError(message: String, catchInterruptions: boolean): Executes its body, and if an exception is thrown, sets the overall build result and the stage result to UNSTABLE, prints the specified message and the exception to the build log, and associates the stage result with the message so that it can be displayed by visualizations.
        • Equivalent to catchError(message: message, buildResult: 'UNSTABLE', stageResult: 'UNSTABLE')
        • catchInterruptions has the same meaning as in the catchError  step.
