      Description

      Note: This is not the same as https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-46551 because a single step in the post { always { } } block succeeds even if the earlier steps {} block throws an exception.

      The second "echo" statement in the post { always { } } section below fails with the exit code 127, which is the bash exit code from the earlier steps block attempt to run an arbitrary invalid shell command.

      Whereas, including only a single step in the post { always { } } works as expected.

      pipeline {
      agent {
        docker {
          image 'python'
        }
      }
        stages {
          stage('Run Tests') {
            steps {
              sh 'throwcommandnotfound'
            }
            post {
              always {
                echo 'this will succeed'
                echo 'this will fail'
              }
            }
          }
        }
      }
       

       For the second screenshot below, I removed the second "echo" statement.
