hudson.plugins.git.GitException

There are no available Samebug tips for this exception. Do you have an idea how to solve this issue? A short tip would help users who saw this issue last week.

  • To be able to do a proper release with the maven-release plugin, we need to be running the build on a clean checkout of a branch (not a detached HEAD). I'm trying to do this with the "Additional Behavior" "Check out to specifig local branch" (see screenshot). But when using jgit, I get this exception: {code} Started by user admin [EnvInject] - Loading node environment variables.
