generateEISDeploymentPlans

Generates deployment Plans for EIS entries, saves them, and activates the changes, but does not redeploy the plans or update the application.

To redeploy instead, use the createOrUpdateEISEntries operation.

To update the application instead, use the updateEISDeploymentPlans operation.

This is useful if deploying EIS entries to a cluster that doesn't have shared storage. In that case, please create a workflow with these steps:

1 - generateEISDeploymentPlans

2 - SyncEISToCluster

3 - createOrUpdateEISEntries (or createOrUpdateWeblogicConfig)

In your Environment Instance, make sure that there are multiple endpoints defined, one for each server which needs a copy of the deployment plans.

The first and third operation in the workflow will run on the admin server, and the SyncEISToCluster operation will run on all managed servers.

Artifacts

This operation consumes properties-file artifacts.

  

Endpoint Selection

This operation will select all available endpoints associated to the environment instance which have a resource type of WLS Admin Server. Since the admin server only runs on one server, it is expected that for a given domain, there will only be one endpoint with a resource type set to WLS Admin Server.

  

Endpoint Execution

This operation will execute on the Admin Server endpoint selected using the WLS Admin Server resource type.

  

Special Considerations

Please see the createOrUpdateDataSources operation page for information about creating data sources.
