exportTransfer

The purpose of this operation is to simplify getting MFT artifacts into an SCM, and typically this operation will be used in a utility workflow specifically built to populate SCM, rather than in the build workflow.

Exports a list of transfers and the associated source and target artifacts and the config plan from the MFT Design time to the FD_TEMP_DIR/export . You can copy these files from the /temp/export/ folder to wherever your mft source is checked out from the SCM using the file plugin.

When an artifact exports from MFT the name looks like:  so_916dffd7-19fc-406e-9fac-12b46fe79d0f.xml, this makes it hard to determine which files to pick then deploying a transfer and its associated files, so the ExportTransfer operation will automatically rename the files to the name of the source, target, or transfer that it contains. This name will then be the one that is checked into SCM if you add additional steps to the workflow. The name will be converted back to the Source, Target, or Transfer ID at deployment time automatically.

The plugin defaults to exporting Common Attributes like the UI would:

.

You can export with All Attributes using the input "All ConfigPlan Attributes."
