Plugin Information

View Pipeline: Step API on the plugin site for more information.

API for asynchronous build step primitive.

A component of Pipeline Plugin.


2.20 (Jun 03, 2019)

  • JENKINS-41854 - Add DynamicContext extension point that can be used to dynamically inject and refresh Pipeline context variables.
  • PR #44 - Improve how FlowInterruptedExceptions that contain nested FlowInterruptedExceptions are displayed in build logs.
  • PR #43 - Deprecate StepDescriptor.newInstance and StepDescriptor.uninstantiate in favor of more general methods provided by CustomDescribableModel.

2.19 (Feb 01, 2019)

Requires Jenkins core 2.121.1 or newer.
  • JENKINS-51170 - Add StepEnvironmentContributor extension point, which allows extensions to access the current FlowNode when expanding environment variables.
  • Internal - Simplify test code by depending on a more recent version of workflow-cps in test scope.

2.18 (Jan 14, 2019)

  • JENKINS-49337 - Add GeneralNonBlockingStepExecution utility to allow block-scope steps to execute without blocking the CPS VM thread.

2.17 (Dec 06, 2018)

  • Explicitly set the class loader used for worker threads created by SynchronousNonBlockingStepExecution and its implementations to avoid issues where the incorrect class loader was set on a worker thread. May fix JENKINS-53305, but we have not been able to reproduce the issue in a test environment to confirm.

2.16 (Jun 25, 2018)

  • SynchronousNonBlockingStepExecution.stop to properly handle FlowInterruptedException.

2.15 (May 19, 2018)

  • Prevent silent hangs in SynchronousNonBlockingStepExecution.run by catching and handling all Throwables
  • Support Incrementals

2.14 (Nov 21, 2017)

  • JENKINS-48115 - Be defensive and don't include "metasteps" with Object or Void.Type as their metaStepArgumentType, since that can end up breaking many things.

2.13 (Sept 19, 2017)

  • JENKINS-26148 - Default implementation provided for StepExecution.stop

2.12 (Jun 30, 2017)

  • The StepDescriptor.argumentsToString parameter need no longer be checked for null.

2.11 (Jun 05, 2017)

  • Added EnvironmentExpander.constant API.

2.10 (May 22, 2017)

  • Feature: provide APIs to format Step arguments to Strings for UI display - JENKINS-37324
  • Provide more legible stack traces

2.9 (Feb 08, 2017)

  • Redundant recording of causes of interruption, affecting JENKINS-41276 fix.
  • Excessive logging in virtual thread dumps; related to JENKINS-41551 fix.

2.8 (Feb 02, 2017)

  • JENKINS-41551 Fix a deadlock from calling getStatusBounded in StepExecution.toString

2.7 (Jan 10, 2017)

  • JENKINS-40909 Enable steps formerly using AbstractStepExecutionImpl, which for compatibility reasons must continue to do so, to compile without deprecation warnings.

2.6 (Dec 12, 2016)

  • JENKINS-39134 Deprecating Guice-based step implementations as this system led to various hard-to-debug problems. Issuing a runtime warning when one such case can be detected.
  • Making the test JAR smaller.

2.5 (Oct 31, 2016)

  • JENKINS-39275 Make sure diagnostics added in 2.2 do not block a thread indefinitely.

2.4 (Sep 23, 2016)

  • Error reporting improvement after build abort.

2.3 (Jul 28, 2016)

  • Infrastructure for JENKINS-29922.
  • Record exceptions thrown during cleanup from a block step when the block also failed.

2.2 (Jun 29, 2016)

2.1 (May 23, 2016)

2.0 (Apr 05, 2016)
