      Description

      When using the choice parameter, the selection is not being output to the appropriate environment variable. Here is the code I am using:
       

      def environmentChoices = ['blue', 'green'].join('\n') 
      def stagingEnvironmentInpit = input( message: "apistaging.evolution-software.com is currently pointed to ${currentEnvironment}. Where do you want to promote to?", ok: 'Deploy', parameters: [choice(choices: environmentChoices, name: 'RELEASE_ENVIRONMENT')] ) 
       echo env.RELEASE_ENVIRONMENT

       RELEASE_ENVIRONMENT will remain null.

          input can't automatically propagate to the environment - you can find the input result, in your case, in stagingEnvironmentInput. If you had multiple parameters, you could find it in stagingEnvironmentInput.RELEASE_ENVIRONMENT.
