Unable to set a default value for passwords in declarative pipeline using Job DSL plugin

Environment

Issue

After Jenkins update to 2.249, trying to set a default value for the “password” parameter using DSL job shows the following error:

No such property: Secret for class: javaposse.jobdsl.plugin.structs.DescribableContext

Explanation

After Jenkins update to 2.249, the “password” parameter method to set the default value changed from defaultValue("foo") to defaultValueAsSecret(Secret.fromString("foo"))
(as described in https://issues.jenkins.io/browse/JENKINS-63499) and Job DSL plugin doesn’t recognize the hudson.util.Secret class.

Example of the new method:

password{
   name('name')
   description('description')
   defaultValueAsSecret(Secret.fromString("foo"))
}

Resolution

This is being fixed in https://issues.jenkins.io/browse/JENKINS-64539. Consult if there is a fix in more recent versions. On the contrary, it won’t be possible to set a default value for a password using Jod DSL.

As a workaround, create a scripted pipeline for this purpose and avoid Job DSL for the moment.

Tested product/plugin versions

Job DSL Plugin version 1.77
