rpdBuild

Builds a deployment object that contains the RPD. This is used to extract the RPD from a source environment. If storing the RPD in source control, use an SCM checkout step instead.

Property replacement on variables and connection pool information is supported via a configuration file that should reside in an SCM repository.  For more information on Property Replacement for OBIEE, see RPD Configuration File.

Artifacts

This operation produces an archive file of the  RPD artifact. The archive file is suitable for the rpdDeploy operation.  

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.
