2 issues was faced:-
 a) where to put the shell script file on the jenkins server and how will Jenkins refer to that file

b) how will Jenkins server know that the given text is shell script and not a shell command.

Passing parameterized commands and parameterized flie using the below link was not helpful as user has to type in values manually and there are lot of chances that end user may enter incorrect or bizarre values and would need validations.

Best approach was to enter below command in the Execute shell command text area -

exec <Script name>  [branches] [releaseName] [buildName]

Open in new window

some how the parameter got passed by the above suggested method by: "worm-getter" and it might be a way to pass input parameter however it is not recommended as it is error prone and also the uploaded shell file script file got uploaded successfully when prompted to run the job and got downloaded on running the job however they did not execute so I do not recommend that approach.
