To push ACLs, the system converts the access control list defined for a server into a users configuration file and pushes that file to the agent. The access control list is derived from user permissions defined in the RBAC system.

Skip Upgrade

If this option is selected, upgrade operation will not be executed if there is any other job in progress, due to which agent is already in use.

Job Options

Field

Description

Preserve Staging Area On Failure

By default, this option is not selected, so that when the system has finished installing or upgrading an agent, it automatically deletes all files in the staging area.
