Cannot deploy to a websphere application container from jenkins using the websphere deployer plugin

when we try to deploy to a docker container using websphere deployer plugin in jenkins, we get the error “Failure uploaded archive to server” please advise.

Jenkins deploy plugin can’t find the war file since following path isn’t a relative path to your workspace:


the same jenkins job is able to deploy to other websphere instances. But it seems to be failing to upload artifacts to a container that is running a websphere application.
Infact it reaches the container, stops the websphere application, but fails in the upload step.
