      Description

      Changes to the parameter defaultValue in Jenkinsfile are not reflected in existing Jenkins job after executing the job.

      • use following parameter definition:
      properties([
          parameters([
              string(name: 'EXCLUDE', defaultValue: 'pattern', description: 'description'),
          ]),
      ]) 
      • add new job and run it for the first time, go to job configuration - the job should now have this parameter with "pattern' default value
      • change in the Jenkinsfile pattern to "pattern2"
      • run the job again and go to job configuration - the job will still have the old value "pattern"
