Jenkins error: groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException

I tried to run groovy build step and got below error. This post will describe how I solved the problem.

Caught: groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: hudson for class: script


 
Full error message
15:51:57  Building on master

The script that I tried to run
deleteWorkspaceIfNotRunning ("ApolloContinuous")
deleteWorkspaceIfNotRunning ("ApolloDotNet")
deleteWorkspaceIfNotRunning ("ApolloOTAandTests")

def deleteWorkspaceIfNotRunning (jobName)
{
job = hudson.model.Hudson.instance.items.find{job -> job.name == jobName}
println ("Delete workspace for "+job.getName() + " if not under progress")

if (!job.isBuilding())
{
println ("     >>> Delete workspace for "+job.getName() + " ...")
job.doDoWipeOutWorkspace()
}
else
{
println ("     >>> Do not delete workspace for "+job.getName() + " because it is currently under progress")
}
}



The configuration (after I installed Groovy Plugin)
 
The root cause of the error and the solution
I didn't noticed but Groovy plugin added two build step types: "Execute groovy script" and "Execute system groovy script". I used by mistake the first type instead of the second.
So fix was simple - delete this step and create new step of type "Execute system groovy script"
