      Problem: The parameterized build variables are not are not visible (as env variables) in the Execution step "shell script", They used to be visible in the older 1.x jenkins version.

      EDIT[2016-22-june]: THESE PARAMETERS ARE VISIBLE AS ENV VARIABLES ON MASTER BUT NOT ON THE SLAVES.

      Steps:

      Create a parameterized build with a multi configuration project.
      Add a parameter to the build (using This project is parameterized-> string parameter,

      {if that matters}

      ).
      Add a build step "Execute shell" to the job.

      Access these parameters in this shell script as env variables.

      echo "++++++++++++ building $lib_name ($lib_version) ++++++++++++++"

      Workaround--> for the time being, I have tried to create a groovy script in "Prepare an environment for the run" section. I created env variables using hardcoded values which are pased to shell script as env vars.

      def map = ['lib_name':'lib1']
      map['lib_version'] = 'master'
      return map

      This makes these "Hardcoded" variables visible in jenkins shell script..
