      We have a Jenkins job which tests out product using different tools such as sbt, maven, gradle and so on. Our build runs in parallel on multiple nodes and we wanted to "zip" some artifacts from the target directories for easier debugging.

      According to the documentation (as well as the generated Pipeline snippet from the Pipeline Syntax page) the following line should be working just fine:

      zip archive: true, dir: './maven/target', glob: '', zipFile: 'maven-target.zip'

      Unfortunately this is not the case and we receive the following exception:

      org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:
      WorkflowScript: 43: Invalid parameter "archive", did you mean "url"? @ line 43, column 33.
