Groovy Question

Groovy Date() object cannot be creted in Jenkins pipeline

Having trouble initializing a groovy Date() object in Jenkins, followed by a Failure of the Job build.

Date date = new Date()
String now = date.format("yyyy-MM-dd-hh-mm")

println "$now"


Should I import the module
Date()
somehow? Any suggestions?

This is the error log from the build failure:

Answer

This output means it is not a whitelisted method/class:

org.jenkinsci.plugins.scriptsecurity.sandbox.RejectedAccessException: Scripts not permitted to use new java.util.Date

You can either approve it through jenkinsurl/scriptApproval or change it to something that is supported.

println currentBuild.getTimeInMillis()
println currentBuild.getStartTimeInMillis()
