Is it possible for the Jenkins pipeline function 'fileExist' to handle wildcards?

Can Jenkins pipeline function fileExist handle wildcards? I have created a zip file in the workspace folder in advance.

The fileExist step does not accept wildcards.

But, if you use the ‘Pipeline Utility Steps Plugin’, you can make use of the findFiles function which accepts wildcards.

An example:

def files = findFiles glob: '**/*.zip'
boolean exists = files.length > 0

If you do not have the plug-in, you can use the shell "find". 

def exitCode = sh script: 'find -name "*.zip" | egrep .', returnStatus: true boolean exists = exitCode == 0

FileExists() does not support wildcards. FileFindFirst() does though, and you can check for a folder that way.
