Installed Eclipse and https://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/jenkins-editor, 
and can edit Declarative scripts (regular pipeline job, not Blue Ocean 
MultiBranch job).  Storing the Jenkinsfile in SCM, but naming it different 
(ex: Jenkinsfile9-2), so this way if anyone does create a MultiBranch 
pipeline later, it will not be picked up and executed.  Also put code in 
script to not execute if the branch parameter passed in is not the correct 
branch...

pipeline {
    agent any
parameters {
string(defaultValue: '9.2', description: 'Branch to build', name: 
'BUILD_BRANCH')
}
stages { 
      stage('Run if the correct branch was selected') {
    when {
  expression {params.BUILD_BRANCH == "9.2"}
    }
    stages {
      stage('9-2 Build') {
steps { 
script {
  if (env.BUILD_BRANCH == '9.2') {
echo 'Branch is 9.2'
  } else {
echo BUILD_BRANCH
echo "Branch is ${env.BUILD_BRANCH}"
  }
}
}
          }   
  stage('Test') {
            steps {
              echo '9-2 Testing..'
            }
  } 
  stage('9.2 Deploy') {
            steps {

            }
          }

    }
