A pipeline always ends with a java.io.NotSerializableException, even if the result is the expected one.


By design a pipeline can only keep records of Serializable objects. If you still need to keep an intermediate variable with a non serializable object, you need to extract it into a method and annotate this method with @NonCPS. For example, you need to transform

def job = Jenkins.instance.getItemByFullName('test')
def sourceBuild = job.getLastBuild().getNumber()


def getBuildNumber(String jobName) {
  def job = Jenkins.instance.getItemByFullName(jobName)
  return  job.getLastBuild().getNumber()

def build = getBuildNumber('test')
