Workspace Management

createWorkspace

Creates a new workspace. A workspace definition consists of three paths to access the workspace in various ways:

agentDrivePath

agentUncPath —The agent uses agentUncPath and agentDrivePath to compute the drive mapping needed to make agentDrivePath valid in the step (see examples below).

agentUnixPath

Examples for agentDrivePath and agentUncPath :

agentDrivePath agentUncPath Result from running a step in "job123" that uses this workspace

N:\

\\server\share

The agent maps \\server\share to drive n: and runs the step in ` n:\job123`.

N:\sub1

\\server\share\dir1\sub1

The agent maps \\server\share\dir1 to drive n: and runs the step in ` n:\sub1\job123`.

N:\sub1

\\server\share\dir1

Invalid! No mapping can be deduced from this pair of values.

C:\ws

C:\ws

A local workspace on the agent. No drive mapping is needed. The job step runs in ` c:\ws\job123`.

C:\ws

Same as if agentUncPath were set identical to agentDrivePath.

You must specify a workspaceName.

Arguments Descriptions

workspaceName

The workspace name.

Argument type: String

agentDrivePath

(Optional) Drive-letter-based path used by Windows agents to access the workspace in steps.

Argument type: String

agentUncPath

(Optional) UNC path used by Windows CloudBees CD web servers to access the workspace. The agent uses agentUncPath and agentDrivePath to compute the drive mapping needed for making agentDrivePath valid in the step.

Argument type: String

agentUnixPath

(Optional) UNIX path used by UNIX agents and Linux CloudBees CD web servers to access the workspace.

Argument type: String

credentialName

(Optional) Credential to use when connecting to a network location. credentialName can be one of two forms: relative (for example, "cred1" ) —the credential is assumed to be in the project that contains the request target object absolute (for example, "/projects/BuildProject/credentials/cred1" )—the credential can be from any specified project, regardless of the target object’s project.

Argument type: String

description

Argument type: String

local

(Optional) < Boolean flag— 0|1|true|false >

modifyWorkspace

Modifies an existing workspace.

A workspace definition consists of three paths to access the workspace in various ways:

agentDrivePath

agentUncPath —The agent uses agentUncPath and agentDrivePath to compute the drive mapping needed to make agentDrivePath valid in the step (see examples below).

agentUnixPath
