    Hi, I am currently running on jenkins 1.499, making use of the template workflow plugin. (Apologies, there is currently no option to allow this component to be selected in the components drop down field on this form). When trying to update the job (The plugin modifies the look and feel of the job page itself in order to provide its functionality), either when creating a new workflow instance, or updating the job parameters for an existing instance, if any of the job parameter fields contains a reference to a jenkins environment variable ${TJEV_LOOKUP_EMAIL} in the example screenshot below, the form cannot be saved. When creating a new template workflow instance, the following error occurs: {noformat} Status Code: 500 Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal group reference Stacktrace:
