Allow sequential stages inside parallel in Scripted syntax

      Description

      Similar to JENKINS-46809, I would like the Blue Ocean GUI to properly visualize multiple stages in sequence that are all parallel of each other. Below is an example image of what this looks like using declarative syntax (working):

       

      Here is the declarative example code I wrote to generate the example image:

      pipeline {
        agent { label 'master' }
        stages {
          stage('Build and Test') {
            parallel {
              stage("Build and Test Linux") {
                stages {
                  stage("Build (Linux)") {
                    agent any
                    steps {
                      echo "Inside for loop 1"
                    }
                  }
                  stage("Test (Linux)") {
                    agent any
                    steps {
                      echo "Inside for loop 2"
                    }
                  }
                }
              }
              stage("Build and Test Windows") {
                stages {
                  stage("Build (Windows)") {
                    agent any
                    steps {
                      echo "Inside for loop 3"
                    }
                  }
                  stage("Test (Windows)") {
                    agent any
                    steps {
                      echo "Inside for loop 4"
                    }
                  }
                }
              }
            }
          }
        }
      }

       

      Here is example scripted Jenkins code that I would like to use. Linux and windows build/test flows happen in parallel. Inside each flow in a "build" stage and then a "test" stage. The Windows sequential build/test flow should be displayed in parallel with the Linux build/test flow, but right now the separate Build/Test sequential stages are combined into one circle/stage when using the scripted syntax.

       

      pipeline {
        agent any
        stages {
          stage("Build and Test") {
            steps {
              script {
                parallel linux: {
                  node("linux_build") {
                    echo "Inside for loop 1"
                  }
                  node("linux_test") {
                    echo "Inside for loop 2"
                  }
                },
                windows: {
                  node("windows_build") {
                    echo "Inside for loop 3"
                  }
                  node("windows_test") {
                    echo "Inside for loop 4"
                  }
                }
              }
            }
          }
        }
      }
      

       

      This is what the scripted example code currently generates:

            Contra Olivier Lamy’s comment there I consider this a bug. Blue Ocean should pay attention to the build metadata as provided by official Pipeline APIs and may not make assumptions about the mechanism used to run a build, except insofar as that is intrinsically required for a certain feature. (For example, a stage restart button should only appear next to a Declarative stage, because the feature of restarting a stage is tied to Declarative semantics.)

            Regardless of how the issue is classified, the question of whether it will be fixed or not depends entirely on the development team’s time and priorities.

            Thanks Jesse Glick and An Tran for digging into this more! I personally am not concerned whether or not this is a bug or improvement, as long as it is fixed . It does sound a lot like a bug to me, but I do understand the argument for it being an improvement. Whatever the best path to resolution is will be fine with me.

            Based on the tickets An Tran linked above, it looks like others desire this functionality as well.

            I am also stuck in the same situation, where I need to use scripted parallel block within declarative and the blueocean view is doesn't display the stages for scripted block correctly.

            Here I share three code examples (bottom of this comment)

            1. declarative parallel within declarative pipeline
            2. scripted parallel within scripted pipeline
            3. scripted parallel within declarative pipeline

            The first two get visualized as expected.

            The third one gets a messed up visualization starting at the parallel part, i.e. also affects the next non-parallel stage.

            The code

            • declarative parallel within declarative pipeline
              pipeline {
                  agent("none")
