It just defines a variable outside the scope of the closure that is passed to stage. This variable
is used in that closure.

Firstly, what does the...

def mainScmDetails

...without anything after it mean in Groovy? "stage" defines a Jenkins pipeline stage that
I see in my pipeline browser, that is, I see "Checkout" as one of the stages.

Looks to me like stage is a method or a closure that takes 2 args. The first is a string,
the second is a closure.

Subject: Help with Groovy syntax

I'm 4 days old new to Groovy. I bought a book, but I just want to learn what this syntax mean
for today.

We use Groovy to run a Jenkins file in our Jenkins build. One stage has these statements in
it.


    def mainScmDetails

    stage("Checkout") {

        mainScmDetails = checkout scm

        dir("some-dir") {

            git url: 'git@domain.com/path/project.git<http://git@domain.com/path/project.git>',
credentialsId: 'some_creds', branch: 'develop'

        }

    }



Does this define a code block named mainScmDetails? Does the statement...

mainScmDetails = checkout scm

...call two functions, namely, checkout and scm?

Thanks,

Chris
