* Global Variables Reference: <JENKINS_URL>/pipeline-syntax/globals

B Be sure to frequently check for Pipeline Plugin updates and keep current on updating your environment(s) with recent bug fixes and feature improvements.

C Place a Checkpoint before a high-risk operation (e.g: long running external process), before using a node step to obtain an executor for it. If the build fails, Checkpoint allows the build to be resumed from the checkpoint just before the failure.
