      Description

      For the Pipeline:

      pipeline {
         agent any 
         node {
            checkout scm
         }
         stages {   
            stage ("Unit Tests") {
               steps {
                  sh "./node_modules/.bin/mocha --reporter mocha-junit-reporter --reporter-options mochaFile=./testResults/results.xml"
                  junit allowEmptyResults: true, testResults: 'testResults/results.xml'
               }
            }
         }
      }
      

      The following error is emitted, which is misleading for the user:

      org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:
      WorkflowScript: 1: Undefined section "node" @ line 1, column 1.
         pipeline {
         ^
