View Pipeline: Multibranch on the plugin site for more information.
Automatically creates a new Jenkins job whenever a new branch is pushed to a source code repository.
Other plugins can define various branch types, e.g. a Git branch, a Subversion branch, a GitHub Pull Request etc.
See this blog post for more info:https://jenkins.io/blog/2015/12/03/pipeline-as-code-with-multibranch-workflows-in-jenkins/
A component of the Pipeline Plugin.
To determine the branch being built - use the environment variable
BRANCH_NAME - e.g.
2.20 (July 9, 2018)

2.13 (Mar 03, 2017)
- JENKINS-33273 Load
Jenkinsfile(or any file requested in
loadTrusted) directly from the SCM rather than doing a checkout. Requires a compatible SCM (currently Git or GitHub).
- JENKINS-40521 Orphaned branch projects are now effectively disabled.
- JENKINS-41146 Help text improvement.
- API change:
AbstractWorkflowMultiBranchProjectFactoryimplementers may now throw
One aspect of JENKINS-33273 is that you will not get an SCM changelog from a lightweight checkout of
Jenkinsfile itself---only if your script actually runs
This behavior change can be suppressed in case of emergency using
