How to get scm url in build script for jenkins multibranch workflow project

I am trying to get a prebuild merge to work inside a multibranch pipeline and I would like to avoid having to hardcode the git url in my pipeline script. It seems like scm step must store the url somehow, but I cannot figure out how to access it.

I have jenkins set up to build any branch and merge it into master. I also have pre-receive scripts to prevent any developer from checking into master unless you are user “hudson“. It is working great on one of our repositories but on the other one, any time someone pushes a new remote branch, hudson […]
