gradlew build fails with 'Permission denied'

Symptoms:

When trying to run Gradle build using the wrapper, the job fails with Permission denied.

Possible cause:

The gradlew wrapper file doesn't have the execute permission. Typically, this happens when the wrapper is located not in the project root but in a different directory. In this case Automation is unable to set the execute flag to the file.

Solution:

Follow the instructions.
