One way to display a variable in a Jenkins script that contains single quotes without causing an error is to use double quotes instead of single quotes. For example:

echo "The value of my variable is $myVariable"

Alternatively, you can escape the single quotes with a backslash.

echo 'The value of my variable is '\''$myVariable'\'''

This tells the shell to treat the single quotes around $myVariable as literal characters.
