Environment variable for current branch

      Description

      Original reporter A. Klitzing

      I need to know the current branch in generated job (see conditional step) but there is no $BRANCH variable or something like this I can use. $JOB_NAME does not contain only "branch name".

      Please add a $CURRENT_BRANCH or something like this.
      As a work-around I used Envinject plugin with the following groovy script.

      def jobName = currentJob.getName()
      return [BRANCH: "${jobName}"]
      

      It's weird that currentJob.getName() works instead of $JOB_NAME.

            I read about

            {env.BRANCH_NAME}

            should do the trick. Does that work for you?

            Thank you for the workaround snippet! The git plugin gives you $GIT_BRANCH, but that has an extra "origin/" prefix that I couldn't figure out how to cleanly strip for a parameterized trigger of another job, so came to file this bug.
