We are trying to adopt Cloud Manager for our Build and deployment. We are at AEM 6.5.5. We need to push a specific file from Dispatcher code into certain location in Dispatcher using pom.xml in Dispatcher. The file is custom file and not part of regular conf.* folders... How can we achieve that?
I have created a folder in dispatcher called "script" and placed the file there. I can see it is getting bundled in the artifact zip file.
But what I also need is to copy-paste/replace this file to a dispatcher location "/opt/dispatcher/scripts".
We used to do that using copy command in Jenkins, but need to know how to do the same using maven.
My plan was to extract the dispatcher artifact zip and then copy-paste the script file into the location "/opt/dispatcher/scripts". I was referring these two articles for unzip and copy. https://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-dependency-plugin/examples/unpacking-artifacts.html https://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-dependency-plugin/examples/copying-artifacts.html Not sure if this is right approach..but I am getting error in unzip itself. I have attached the dispatcher pom.xml for your reference.
I don't think the CM supports this use-case. It only deploys the standard conf.* folders. You can check with your CSE but I strongly believe we don't have any flexibility to execute these kind of use-cases. We also used to use Jenkins to copy the files from GIT to DISP servers using shell scripts in Jenkins but Cloud Manager don't offer this functionality yet.
Thank you Singaiah. We opened daycare and asked Adobe to get advise CM expert...This file we dont need to put in each deployment. It is used for custom Vanity redirect implementation. So one time manual placement is good for us. But not sure if our CSE can do in CM world.
Do I understand you correctly, that you want to deploy static elements directly into the dispatcher cache?
As far as I understood the mechanics of the CM setup, this is not possible; and a probably much easier way to handle it would be to deploy the files statically into dispatcher, so they are fetched once. And then make the cachable forever by setting the stat file accordingly.
