Jenkins Job DSL fails to accept any SVN credentials use in the seed job script

I'm using the Jenkins DSL for the first time to create some seed jobs.

I want to use some SVN credentials in one of these but no matter what I try the seed job fails to create a new job when I run it as soon as I put the credentials in. The DSL script works fine without the SVN credentials.

This is the relevant snippet from my seed job script:

scm {
svn {

Note that I'm not sure what I am meant to enter for "credentials so I have tried the credential ID as you see here, the name ("jenkins.mycompany/******"), the description ("Jenkins SVN Credentials"). I've also tried wrapping each of these options in single and double speech marks, brackets, parenthesis. I keep getting this error.

I don't know if this is related to another issue I had a few days ago but I can't see any obvious connection:

Groovy script fails to call Slack notification parameter from Jenkins DSL job

Would appreciate any help.

Answer Source

The tutorial I was using appears to have had some syntax errors. I was able to resolve this by changing my script as below.

  scm {
    svn {
      location(SVN_REPO_URL) {

And now it works.
