Text parameters get converted to String


      I ran across a strange issue:

      • Create a new inheritance job
      • Add a text parameter with some text which includes newlines as default value
      • Save and then click on 'Build with Parameters'

      Then this text parameter has magically become a string parameter and thus lost the newlines.

      Is this a known issue and does anyone know a workaround?
