      Description

      The title says it. Since I don't like to repeat myself please have a look at my answer to "How to trigger downstream jenkins job with File parameter as parameter?" at StackOverflow.

      Suggested actions:

      • Don't add the path name portion, according to what's stated in the inline help
      • Revise the inline help:
        • Don't state a file with an extension (abc.zip at the time of this writing) as an example
        • Add a note that strongly recommends to only use characters in File Location's file name that are officially supported for environment variable names by the OS Jenkins or its slaves are currently running on
