Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Pipeline Builder incorrectly interpreted a default value of an empty string ('') as having no default. Consequence: Some operator provided tasks needed this to be the default and thus will have issues working without it. Fix: Check for a default property and not assume the validity of the value. Result: Should be able to respect anything the OpenShift Pipeline Operator deems as a valid default value.
