'unable to resolve class hudson.util.Secret' exception in groovy script in ANT build.xml

      Description

      I am using Jenkins and ANT build to automate our build and release process.
      I am using 'hudson.util.Secret' API to encrypt and decrypt passwords in Jenkins.
      I have encrypted all passwords and kept in a property file using the API. Now, during the build process, I need to decrypt the password dynamically.
      For that, I decided to use groovy script for decryption process (please refer the below code) in ant build.xml file.

      Code

      import hudson.util.Secret
      // To decrypt Old Password
      def password = Secret.fromString("{AQAAABAAAAAQAoxLF+PLmbaD1FJiLZznGOZ4pEJI4hnXHRjXVkLBrFM=}")
      def decPassword = password.getPlainText()
      println("Decrypted Password = "+decPassword)

      The above code is working fine in Jenkins 'Script Console'. But while using the same in ANT build.xml file as groovy script, 'unable to resolve class hudson.util.Secret' exception is thrown .

      Code in Ant build.xml

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252" ?>
      <project xmlns="antlib:org.apache.tools.ant" name="Sample Build XML" default="main" basedir=".">
      <target name="main">
      <script language="groovy" classpath = "C:/jenkins/war/WEB-INF/lib/groovy-all-2.4.11.jar">
      import hudson.util.Secret
      // To decrypt Old Password
      def password = Secret.fromString("{AQAAABAAAAAQAoxLF+PLmbaD1FJiLZznGOZ4pEJI4hnXHRjXVkLBrFM=}")
      def decPassword = password.getPlainText()
      println("Decrypted Password = "+decPassword)
      </script>
      </target>
      </project>

      Exception

      BUILD FAILED
      C:\tools\my_samples\sample_build.xml:4: javax.script.ScriptException: org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:
      Script1.groovy: 2: unable to resolve class hudson.util.Secret
      @ line 2, column 2.
      import hudson.util.Secret
      ^

      How to resolve 'unable to resolve class hudson.util.Secret' exception in groovy script in ANT build.xml?

      Any other code change is needed in buid.xml file?

      Thanks in advance.
