      Description

      During old style jenkins jobs I can easily print current commit ID (e.g. GIT_COMMIT, SVN_REVISION) to the console.
      But when I want to use it in Jenkinsfile (multi-branch pipeline)I tried

      env.GIT_COMMIT
      

      It gives me null/empty output.
      Commit hash might be useful for informing some revision software about build that succeeded or failed (e.g. I want to use it to ping Atlassian Stash about my build).

      I think this is one of the basic SCM information that should be available (just like current branch name in env.BRANCH_NAME).

            I have a less than ideal workaround:

            sh "git rev-parse --short HEAD > .git/commit-id"                        
            commit_id = readFile('.git/commit-id')
            
            Show

            A bit shorter version of the workaround above:

            commitId = sh(returnStdout: true, script: 'git rev-parse HEAD')
