Our pipeline build shares the workspace to avoid a disk space crisis:
The build does use the specified workspace, but it's impossible to navigate to it from the Jenkins GUI.
Example URL for one step page:
The page says:
Running on W-Buildslave05 in H:\hudson\workspace\pipeline-github_core_PR-50-KZXDVTLM6IYU3ZK3N7DWU5QR4ODL5DU2UGPV2PS5G6WFQGQE5XIQ
If I go to the build slave in question, the directory doesn't actually exist.
The link in the sidebar links to:
But Jenkins gives a 404 for that URL.
Given that it gives a 404, it might not be the custom workspace which causes the issue... but it seems to be the only thing we've customised, and you'd think that if it's a deeper problem, someone who isn't using a custom workspace would have noticed it by now.
