Enter the following information:

Field NameDescription

Step Name

Enter a unique name for your preflight step. You can use any name of your choice.

SCM Configuration

Use the pull-down menu to select a source control configuration. If a configuration for your source control type does not appear in the drop-down menu, select the Administration > Source Control tabs to configure your source control system.

Destination Directory

This field appears after specifying your SCM from the pull-down menu. If this field does not specify "Required", you do not need to enter this information. The Destination Directory is a path relative to the job’s workspace, where the source tree will be created.

Click Submit after entering your information. After clicking Submit, the Edit Step page is displayed.

Use the Edit Step page to specify additional information for your preflight step. Also, you can attach a credential, create an email notifier, add custom properties, and so on to your step. For assistance using the Edit Step page, access the Help link in the upper right corner of the page.
