Jenkins ver. 2.5
I'm trying to build a simple job from scripts in a git repo and copy another file from the filesystem using the File System SCM and Multiple SCMs plugins. I can copy the file system directory by itself as the only SCM without Multiple SCMs configured. I can also checkout from git, but when I add the File System SCM under Multiple SCMs and configure the path I get this error in the console output log:
FSSCM.checkout to /home/user/.jenkins/workspace/Projects/Build Test
FATAL: Parameter 'directory' is not a directory
Going back to re-configure the build, I find that the file system path is empty, so it doesn't seem to be correctly saving this parameter.
Suggest that you migrate to Pipeline plugin, which offers a supported way of checking out from multiple scms
This error usually pops up when you point to a directory that doesnt exist. Since you are using a directory with whitespace in your checkout path, have you tried on one without?
dominikgebhart It doesn't work if you have a directory without a space in its name/path, it won't save them when trying to use "multiple SCM".
