Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: The Pipeline Builder reads Task/ClusterTask definitions and made an incorrect assumption that all Parameters were of type string. Consequence: When a Task Param of type array was encountered, it would cast the array to a string and represent it losing the type and would produce a value to the Task param as string thus breaking the contract with the Task. Fix: Support Array type in the UI and properly retrain the type Result: Managing both types allows the Pipeline Builder to work the way it was intended.

Description Andrew Ballantyne 2020-03-15 16:21:16 UTC
Description of problem:
While using the Pipeline Builder, when a parameter of type array is used, it doesn't come out of the builder as type array... but instead of type string. This is a type violation and thus prevents the Pipeline from being started.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create using the Pipeline Builder (create button on the Pipelines list view)
2. Add `openshift-client`
3. See a text input, update, and create Pipeline

Actual results:
The value was saved as a string in the YAML; Pipeline won't start.

Expected results:
The value should be saved as an array.
