    Summary

    The steps in this plugin work with versioned components. For example, the Download Artifacts step retrieves the latest version of a component. Most component deployment processes use this step to download the component artifacts to the agent system.

    For AIX systems, file permissions defined at the operating system level are not supported by the HCL Launch Versioned File Storage plugin. The plugin uses the permissions set by a process or script. The chmod command can be used to reset a permission to the value defined at the operating system level.

    This plugin includes one or more steps, click Steps for step details and properties.

    Compatibility

    This plugin requires HCL Launch version 7.0 or later.

    This plugin runs on all operating systems that are supported by the HCL Launch agent.

    Usage

    Steps

    The following process steps are available in the Versioned File Storage plugin.

    Download Artifacts

    Download artifacts from a VFS server.

    Input properties for the Download Artifacts step
    Name Type Description Required
    Artifact Directory Offset String The base directory from which artifacts will be retrieved from the Component Version.
    For example, using App/Dist will only get all files from in the App/Dist directory
    and put them in the Current Working Directory. All includes/excludes will be evaluated
    relative to this offset.
    No
    Charset String The Character set that files whose metadata includes a character set should be converted
    to upon download (e.g. UTF-8). If this field is left blank then the system’s default
    charset will be used.
    No
    Directory Offset String The working directory to use when executing this command. This is relative to current
    working directory.
    Yes
    Excludes String The patterns to exclude files to upload. No
    Full Verification Boolean (Valid only with Sync Mode enabled) When selected, hashes will be computed on each
    file in the destination artifact set to determine whether network transfer is necessary.
    Otherwise, files will be compared by date modified and size.
    No
    Handle Incremental Versions Boolean (Valid only with Sync Mode enabled) When selected, incremental version handling is
    enabled. When not selected, the legacy behavior is enabled, which is to handle incremental
    versions as though they are full versions. Enabling incremental version handling has
    two effects. First, when deploying a full version, all versions back to the most recently
    deployed full version are considered when determining which files to update or remove;
    the legacy behavior will only consider the the single most recently deployed version.
    Second, deploying an incremental version will not remove files from all currently
    deployed versions and will restore missing files from those versions; the legacy behavior
    will remove files from the single most recent currently deployed version and ignore
    files from other currently deployed versions. For server versions before 7.1.1.0,
    there is a negative performance impact to enabling this feature due to API availablity.
    The impact is the greatest for versions 6.2.7.0 through 7.1.0. Until 7.1.1.0, is not
    recommended to enable this feature unless you use incremental versions.
    No
    Includes String The patterns to match files to upload. The wildcard ** indicates every directory and
    the wildcard * indicates every file. So the pattern dist/**/* would retrieve the entire
    file tree underneath the dist directory.
    Yes
    Set File Execute Bits Boolean When enabled, sets file execute bits on the files which have them set in the repository. No
    Sync Mode Enumeration Sync transfers only changed files, removing files that exist only in the previously deployed version. Clean removes all files not contained in the currently deployed version. Specify true, false, or Full. No
    Verify File Integrity Boolean When enabled, verifies downloaded files match their hash. Enabling this may reduce
    performance.
    No

     

    Download Artifacts for zOS

    Download zOS component artifacts from a VFS server.

    Directory Offset String The working directory to use when executing this command. This is relative to current
    working directory.
    Yes

     

    Sync Artifacts

    Compare local artifacts with the artifacts expected to be on the resource according
    to its inventory, and remediate any differences.

    Input properties for the Sync Artifacts step
    Name Type Description Required
    Charset String The Character set that files whose metadata includes a character set should be converted
    to upon download (e.g. UTF-8). If this field is left blank then the system’s default
    charset will be used.

    Upload artifacts to a VFS server.

    working directory.
    Yes
    Excludes String The patterns to exclude files to upload. No
    Includes String The patterns to match files to upload. The wildcard ** indicates every directory and
    the wildcard * indicates every file. So the pattern dist/**/* would retrieve the entire
    file tree underneath the dist directory.
    Yes
    Save File Execute Bits Boolean When enabled, file execute bits are saved with the files. No
    Text File Extensions String A comma separated list of extensions of files need to be converted to a new character
    set on download (e.g. txt,properties,log). This should be used in cases where the
    OS the files are being deployed to requires a different character set than the one
    uploading the files into the server.
    No

    Compare artifacts on local machine with inventory.
