copyArtifacts

Copies file(s) and folder(s) from artifacts folder (FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR) recursively to the given target folder. The subfolders are preserved.

The plugin provides the ability to transfer files using filters. The filters allow the user to enter multiple wildcard selection filters to allow very flexible lists of files to copy from the artifacts folder. See the Filter Examples at the end of the document.

In addition, the plugin provides the option to clean up the target before copying the files from artifacts folder.

Description




  

Artifacts

This operation consumes artifacts from artifact repository. This is not exposed to workflow developer.

  

Endpoint Selection

This operation delegates endpoint selection to the workflow developer. The workflow editor will default the selection to "All", which selects all available endpoints associated to the environment instance. Selecting a specific resource will result in selection of endpoints associated to the environment instance which have that resource defined.

  

Endpoint Execution

This operation delegates endpoint execution to the workflow developer. The workflow editor will default to "Any", which will execute on any one of the selected endpoints, which will be randomly picked from selected endpoints or a specific endpoint where previous step may have executed. Changing this value to "All" to will result in execution on all selected endpoints.
