Can't access Jenkins Global Properties from Pipeline DSL


    • Icon: Bug Bug
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Icon: Minor Minor
    • pipeline
    • None
    • workflow-plugin: v1.8
      jenkins: v1.616

      When I try to access the Global Properties environment variables (Manage Jenkins > Configure System > Global Properties) I either get null or an error (details below)

      To replicate issue:

      • Browse to Manage Jenkins > Configure System
      • under the "Global Properties" make sure "Environment variables" is checked
      • under the "Global Properties" > "Environment variables" add a new variable
      • name = TEST_VAR
      • value = some value
      • In left navigation add "New Item"
      • my job was named "workflow-test"
      • select "Workflow" job type
      • under the "Workflow" heading
        • Definition: "Groovy CPS DSL"
        • Script:
      echo "JOB_NAME from env: ${env.JOB_NAME}"
      echo "global property from env: ${env.TEST_VAR}"
      echo "global property: ${TEST_VAR}"

      Build workflow job and go to Console output
      from the output can see that the above script evaluates to:

      echo "JOB_NAME from env: ${env.JOB_NAME}" -> "JOB_NAME from env: workflow-test" (worked)
      echo "global property from env: ${env.TEST_VAR}" -> "global property from env: null" (didn't work, but didn't error)
      echo "global property: ${TEST_VAR}" -> ERROR 
      groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: TEST_VAR for class: WorkflowScript
