Description




  

Artifacts

This operation delegates the consumes/produces artifacts decision to the workflow developer. Check Consumes Artifacts on the workflow step editor if this operation requires artifacts to be delivered prior to execution of the script. Check Produces Artifacts on the workflow step editor if this operation creates artifacts. The artifacts folder is available via the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR variable.

  

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.
