saveArtifacts

Copies file(s) and folder(s) from the temp folder, FD_TEMP_DIR, to the artifacts folder, FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR. This plugin can be used to copy build artifacts to artifacts folder, so they are saved with the Project Version in artifacts folder.

The plugin provides the ability to transfer files using a filter. The filter allows the user to enter multiple wildcard selection filters allowing very flexible lists of files to copy to the artifacts folder.

Description




Artifacts

This operation produces artifacts to be saved to 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.
