Pipeline script post handler - changed action always fired



    • Bug

    • Jenkins server 2.98, Pipeline plugin 2.5, Pipeline step API 2.14


      In a pipeline script I have the following post handler logic.

         post {                                               
             always {                                                          
                 junit 'results/*.xml' 
             changed {                                                      
                 emailext body: '$DEFAULT_CONTENT', subject: '$DEFAULT_SUBJECT', to: 'email@domain.com'                                             

      What used to happen is that emails would only be sent if the state changed. So if the build results were as follows

      • FAILED
      • UNSTABLE
      • UNSTABLE
      • UNSTABLE
      • FAILED
      • UNSTABLE
      • FAILED
      • UNSTABLE
      • UNSTABLE

      Then email would only be sent on the state change from UNSTABLE->FAILED or FAILED->UNSTABLE. Emails would not be sent when the state was UNSTABLE->UNSTABLE.

      However our Jenkins server was updated over Christmas and as a result I am seeing an email being sent regardless of the state remaining the same. I could work around this by using something similar to

      if (currentBuild.currentResult.toString() != currentBuild.getPreviousBuild.getResult().toString()) {
      // email


      However the previous behaviour was what I was expecting to see. Changes in the pipeline plugins seem to be
