In Pipeline scripts, steps is bound to the DSL which has step definitions, and may be passed around as a regular object. Two use cases:
- passing it to a loaded class which would not otherwise have Script bindings in scope
- using it to disambiguate, in case you have defined a local function with the same name as a step
Currently it seems this variable is not documented. It should be mentioned in cps-global-lib/README.md and/or TUTORIAL.md. Perhaps it should be registered as a GlobalVariable to make it more discoverable.
