DepotSoftware - updateSourceLocation_2

DepotSoftware - updateSourceLocation

Description :

This command updates the source location and associated information for a depot software installable.

Use the urlTypeName argument to indicate the name of the deployable URL type. urlTypeName can be one of the following:

  • FILE_SERVER: Upload source to file server.
  • AGENT_COPY_AT_STAGING: Copy to agent at staging.
  • AGENT_MOUNT: Agent mounts source for direct use at deployment (no local copy).

For sourceLocation, you can use fully qualified NFS, SMB or NSH paths. Here are examples of acceptable formats:

  • //myserver/<PATH>
  • rscd://myserver/<PATH>
  • nfs://nfsserver/<export>/<path>
  • smb://[[password:]user@]smbserver/<share>/<path>
    For the SMB option, password and user are optional.

Note that the urlTypeName determines what formats you can use for sourceLocation:

  • If the urlTypeName is FILE_SERVER, then only the NSH path format beginning with // or / (for local host) is permitted.
  • If the urlTypeName is AGENT_COPY_AT_STAGING, then all the sourceLocation formats listed above are permitted.
  • If the urlTypeName is AGENT_MOUNT, then only the NFS and SMB formats are permitted.

For altNSHPath, use an NSH path starting with //.
