      Description

      Following on from: https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-38590

      When there is a step of unknown type, its json object can be rendered by the pipeline-model plugin as the Jenkinsfile form (a line of text), this can then be shown in a text box and editable (when an edit is made, it can be transformed back to the json object form by the pipeline model plugin).

      In scope:

      • Display text box in case of unsupported step type
      • Conversion of step object to text
      • Displaying of editable text
      • Conversion of text to object
      • Works with block scoped steps as well as simple steps

      Some more details, using an example:

       "steps": [      {
              "name": "node",
              "arguments":         {
                "isConstant": true,
                "value": "some-label"
              },
              "children": [        {
                "name": "sh",
                "arguments":           {
                  "isConstant": true,
                  "value": "echo ONSLAVE=$ONSLAVE"
                }
              }]
            }]
      

      (from https://github.com/jenkinsci/pipeline-model-definition-plugin/blob/master/src/test/resources/json/agentNoneWithNode.json)

      In this case, it is the "node" step (say we don't have a form based editor for it). In that case the entire object that is the "node" step from that step listing can be converted to textual form and displayed in a box (and then back).

      This is a good catch all for unsupported steps.
