Sorry for resurrecting this thread. I have the same problem where the build
pipeline is almost identical between projects, and the build pipeline and
environment is controlled by build engineers, not the developers, so it's
very tedious to put the same Jenkinsfile into tens of different repos AND
having to update and create tens of pull requests when we have updates to
I tried Mark Waite suggestion and it's fantastic. However, there's one big
downside: sub-build created by each branch can not be setup to be triggered
by BitBucket push. Has anyone be able to workaround this or have another
strategy to solve the aforementioned problem? I did some research and saw
this feature request (Set the bitbucket trigger using Declarative Pipeline)
<https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-44309> but it's not resolved
yet and I don't know whether it could solve my problem.
Many thanks in advance,
