[JIRA] Commented: (JENKINS-1640) Environment variables not passed through to Ant tasks

JIRA noreply@jenkins-ci.org

    [ http://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-1640?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=146578#comment-146578 ]

Cees Bos commented on JENKINS-1640:

This issue also occurs on Windows batch file scripts.

In the 'System Information' of the slave the CLASSPATH variable is available under the environment variable, but as soon as you do 'echo %CLASSPATH%' this gives you this message: 'ECHO is on.' because the CLASSPATH variable is not available at all.

> It appears that environment variables available in the Hudson configuration
> (i.e. visible in the Hudson System Information page) are NOT passed to Ant
> builds when Hudson launches a configured Ant installation.
> This does not seem intentional. Is this by design?
> For example, I declare an environment variable MYSTERY='This is a puzzler' and
> make it available in the shell by which I launch Hudson (java -jar Hudson.war)
> I add an <echo> statement in my Ant build script to print out the value of this
> env variable. When running Ant outside of Hudson, the value of MYSTERY is
> displayed properly. When running Ant inside of Hudson, the value is not
> resolved even though Hudson displays the value of MYSTERY properly in the
> Environment Variables section of the System Information page.
> This seems unexpected.
> Is this a known issue?
