Never mind the platform determination, the hard part would be engine API changes as outlined in August.
So, I have a similar need here. I wrote and published the Consul KV Builder Plugin (https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Consul-KV-Builder+Plugin) that allows jobs to be configured to Read/Write/Delete Key/Value data from/to Hashicorp Consul servers. In the READ mode, the configured build step reads data from Consul and writes ENV variables. So, that currently cannot work with SimpleBuildStep. I am looking into alternatives with SimpleBuildWrapper, but I don't know if that will work either.
@jimmyraywv your request has nothing to do with this issue. You just need to use SimpleBuildWrapper; I also added a note to JENKINS-29144.
A more general change that might be useful here…
…is JENKINS-37011. Going with that for now as it seems to be easier than the original plan.
Probably better to offer both options.
