Trigger (and track) a build promotion from an unrelated job (using Groovy script)

given 2 (non-pipeline) jobs, A and B, where B needs to automatically update the version of A's built software on a branch which is then consumed by job C. In order to do this, B would need to
  1. Check whether A's latest successful build has also been successfully promoted (say by promotion X)
  2. If not: Run A's promotion X and wait for it to finish successfully. Fail the build if the promotion fails
  3. Get the archived results of the promoted build, update a branch in the repository used by C with A's new version and push the change to trigger a build of C

The problem I have is in step 2. I can trigger the promotion using a curl command from a Shell step, but I'm stuck about how to do this from a (System?) Groovy script AND  track its progress.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance...
