I'm using jenkins pipeline (declarative synthax) and I want to push a commit to my remote repository.

Is there any way to accomplish this using the git plugin? Here is what I'm currently trying:

withCredentials([usernamePassword(credentialsId: "${GIT_CREDENTIAL_ID}", passwordVariable: 'GIT_PASSWORD', usernameVariable: 'GIT_USERNAME')]) {
                        sh "git add ${BRANCH_RENAME}.bundle"
                        sh "echo ${GIT_USERNAME}|||||||${GIT_PASSWORD}"
                        sh "git tag -a backup -m 'Backup branch ${BRANCH} from vega-salesforce to vega-salesforce-backup' "
                        sh('git push https://${GIT_USERNAME}:${GIT_PASSWORD}@${GIT_URL_WITHOUT_HTTPS} --tags')

But it does'nt works. I got the following error:`

fatal: unable to access 'https://****:****@myrepositoryurl/mygitgroup/salesforce-backup/': Could not resolve host: ****:clear_password_here; Name or service not known

Could anyone help please? I though the issue comes from the special characters present in my password but I'm not sure.

We finally figure it out. The problem was simply that we have special characters in our password which break out the url.

Here is the working code:

withCredentials([usernamePassword(credentialsId: env.GIT_CREDENTIAL_ID, usernameVariable: 'USER', passwordVariable: 'PASS')]) {
                    script {
                        env.encodedPass=URLEncoder.encode(PASS, "UTF-8")
                    sh 'git clone https://${USER}:${encodedPass}@${GIT_URL} ${DIR} -b ${BRANCH}'
                    sh 'git add .'
                    sh 'git commit -m "foobar" '
                    sh 'git push'

You can't use username:password for connecting to git repo in script.

You should use ssh key. Please see this answer for more information
