Hi,

we are currently transforming all our SCMs to git. That worked for the jobs that rely on a global library and just have a function-call in the pipeline that's directly set in the job configuration.

However I have a couple of auxiliary jobs that are configured as 'Pipeline script from git'
Here I am experiencing some problems I am not used to from the old SCM:
- the selection 'credentials' is empty even though there are a couple of credentials in and escpecially one I use from a 'checkout' step from my library
- when I add new credentials with the button 'add' one line below the selection still does not show anything.
- the newly added credentials are shown in the global credentials administration list and I am not allowed it another time

Is there a known bug in this area or is there something I am doing wrong?

The version I am running is LTS 2.440.2 with git plugin 5.2.1, running on Windows.

Thanks for any help!

BR,
Christoph

You are probably seeing a limitation of the git plugin.  It accepts ssh private key credentials for git connections over ssh (either ssh:// or git@hostname:) and it accepts username / password credentials for git connections over HTTP (either http:// or https://). If your credential is a secret text or some other form of credential, the git plugin won't show it in the dropdown list because it only supports those two types of credentials.

Hi Mark,

thanks for your support!
The URL is https:// the credentials stored are Username/password (with ID and key of an API-key of an internal gitlab-site).
As mentioned: it is working in the configuration of my shared library and from the checkout scm: scmGit(...)-step.
Ah, but in the library it is referred to as "modern scm". When I switch to "legacy SCM" and choose git I am running into the same problem.
Unfortunately I don't have the "modern"-choice for the pipeline script.

BR,
Christoph
