Create a new option for running when condition before stage input

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      Currently, when using the "stage-level" input (here: https://jenkins.io/doc/book/pipeline/syntax/#input) the when condition of the stage is evaluated after the input is gathered.  We should add an option so the when condition is evaluated before the input is gathered. Something like:

      stage('Production Deploy') {
          agent { label 'linux' }
          when {
              branch "master"
              beforeInput  true
          }
          input { message 'Deploy to Production?' }
          steps {
              echo 'Deploying to Production ... '
          }             
      }

       
      Use cases

      • Evaluate the when condition before the input has been gathered.

            Just a warning, the beforeInput is not documented in the article nor in the snippet generator. I just faced this and the only solution is in Torsten's comment.

            Looks good!

            Q: Can I, and if so how can I make the result of the captured input (the approver) available in a variable?
