deployWebCatalog

Deploys any combination of WebCatalog objects to the target OTBI environment. Objects will be deployed at the same path they were built from, e.g. if a report was built from /shared/Custom/Sample Lite/Reports, it will also be deployed to the same location on the target server.

Endpoint Tip

This operation uses HTTP operations to communicate remotely to the OTBI server, and therefore, can be executed on any endpoint (including LOCALHOST).

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.
