      Description

      We have a job which uses a multibranch pipeline and copies from another job, based on a parameter. In the pipeline, it is expected that the default parameter (which is lastSuccessfulBuild) will be used (the parameter is for cases that the Jenkinsfile is used elsewhere).

      When the branch is newly created, the copy fails with ERROR: Unable to find a build for artifact copy from: UPSTREAM_PROJECT.  (This same error occurs when the parameters are manually removed and the job is rerun.)

      The defaults are used to set params, which was fixed in JENKINS-35698, but they don't appear to be used for copy artifact.

       

      In a test case, a job UPSTREAM_PROJECT  was created with a single artifact.  A scripted pipeline build was created to pull from that job and print the parameters.  It uses a properties block to create the parameter and  perform the copy.  On the first run, it falls and on subsequent runs it succeeds.

      The copy project pipeline:

      properties([
        parameters([
          [$class: 'BuildSelectorParameter', defaultSelector: lastSuccessful(), description: 'Upstream project', name: 'UPSTREAM'],
        ])
      ])
      node {
        print params
        print buildParameter('UPSTREAM')
        copyArtifacts fingerprintArtifacts: false, flatten: true, projectName: 'UPSTREAM_PROJECT', selector: buildParameter('UPSTREAM')
      }

        

      Return from the first build (that fails, started with Build):

      [Pipeline] echo
