When a parameterized job attempts to use the value of the parameter as the username or password of an https based git repository URL, the git client plugin does not expand the parameter reference. If a string parameter USERNAME and a password parameter PASSWORD are defined in either a Freestyle or a Pipeline job, references to those variables are not expanded in the username and password portion of the repository URL.
Notice that the USERNAME parameter is replaced in some parts of the URL, but not in all parts of the URL.
