Setting up Control-M for GCP Deployment Manager

This procedure describes how to deploy the GCP Deployment Manager plug-in, create a connection profile, and define an GCP Deployment Manager job in Control-M Web and Automation API.


Integration plug-ins released by BMC require an Application Integrator installation at your site. However, these plug-ins are not editable and you cannot import them into Application Integrator. To deploy these integrations to your Control-M environment, you import them directly into Control-M using Control-M Automation API.

Before You Begin

Verify that Automation API is installed, as described in Automation API Installation.


  1. Create a temporary directory to save the downloaded files.

  2. Download the GCP Deployment Manager plug-in from the Control-M for GCP Deployment Manager download page in the EPD site.
  3. Install the GCP Deployment Manager plug-in via one of the following methods:
    • (9.0.21 or higher) Use the Automation API Provision service:
      1. Log in to the Control-M/EM Server machine as an Administrator and store the downloaded zip file in the one of the following locations (within several minutes, the job type appears in Control-M Web):
        • Linux: $HOME/ctm_em/AUTO_DEPLOY
        • Windows: <EM_HOME>\AUTO_DEPLOY
      2. Log in to the Control-M/Agent machine and run the provision image command, as follows:
        • Linux: ctm provision image GCP_Deployment_Manager_plugin.Linux
        • Windows: ctm provision image GCP_Deployment_Manager_plugin.Windows
    • ( or lower) Use the Automation API Deploy service, as described in deploy jobtype.
  4. Create an GCP Deployment Manager connection profile in Control-M Web or Automation API, as follows:
  5. Define an GCP Deployment Manager job in Control-M Web or Automation API, as follows:
