      Description

      So this was working fine before Pipeline Model Definition version 1.1.
      ==============================
      #!/usr/bin/env groovy
       
      def SKIP_BUILD = false
       
      pipeline {
          stages {
              stage('build') {
                  when {
                      expression {
                          return !SKIP_BUILD
                      }
                  }
                  steps {
                     echo "Do build work here."
                      **                
                  }
              }
       
          }
       
      }
      ================================
       
      In version 1.0.1 the variable "SKIP_BUILD" was bound correctly and the expression could properly evaluate it.
       
      As of version 1.1 (and still in 1.1.4) this results in 
      groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: SKIP_BUILD for class: groovy.lang.Binding at groovy.lang.Binding.getVariable(Binding.java:63) Same issue if I was trying to use a function in an expression, it used to work now it does not bind. Both bind fine outside of the expression block.
       
      This is blocking me from upgrading Pipeline plugins for Jenkins

            This is fixed as part of JENKINS-42753, there's a relevant test there, and it'll be included in the upcoming Declarative 1.2 release.
