soaStart

Provides the ability to start a composite(s) on the SOA server.  This operation will handle all revisions for a given composite to ensure that the default revision doesn't change as revisions are started.  The default revision is always started, other revisions can be controlled by an "Start All Revisions" input.

Inputs

Required

Description

Composites FileFDSOA_INP_COMPOSITES_FILENoPath, including file name, to file that contains the composites to start.  See Special Considerations section below for additional details.
Composite Name ListFDSOA_INP_COMPOSITE_NAME_LISTNoComma separated list of composites to start.  Optionally, can prefix a partition on the composite name if there are more than one composite with the same name, (<partition:>composite1, composite2).  See Special Considerations section for additional details.
Start All RevisionsFDSOA_INP_START_ALL_REVISIONSNoProvides the option to leave all composites stopped, with the exception of the default revision (default value is False).
Composite Revision

FDSOA_INP_REVISION

No

Provide specific composite revision to start (this is for backwards compatibility).  See Special Considerations section below for additional details.

Make Default Revision

FDSOA_MAKE_DEFAULT_REVISION

No

Make the newly started composite the default revision (this is for backwards compatibility)

Artifacts

This operation doesn't consume or produce any artifacts.


Endpoint Selection

This operation will select all available endpoints associated to the Environment/Instance.


Endpoint Execution

This operation will execute on any one of the selected endpoints and will be random in the determination of which one.


Special Considerations

This operation has two independent capabilities and shouldn't be utilized together as the single revision logic is executed first.  If Composite Revision input is set, the Composite Files and Composite Name List inputs will be ignored  :

  • starting a single revision (this is the backwards compatibility capability)
    • utilizes "Composite Revision" and "Make Default Revision" inputs to control what revision to start and whether it should be the default revision
  • starting multiple composites/revisions
    • utilizes "Composites File" or "Composite Name List" and "Start All Revisions" inputs
      • if utilizing "Composite File", there can be several variations of file name;
        1. just a file name, will look in the temp directory for the given file name
        2. relative path, will only look for the relative path within the temp directory for the given file name
        3. absolute path, will only look at the absolute path for the given file
    • either input (Composite File or Composite Name List) provides a list of composite names to start that must use the following format: <partition:>composite1,composite2 (partition is optional)
    • the default revision is started first and then all non-default revisions will be started, if the "Start All Revisions" input is checked.  This will maintain the default revision and not allow SOA Suite to move the default revision to another revision.  If a composite is in two partitions, then specify the partition in the above format to direct the operation to the correct composite.
