Checksum Utility

On this page

An MD5 checksum file is available for each installer file on the CloudBees ShareFile and FTP sites. To verify that CloudBees Flow files are intact and unaltered after you download them, download the corresponding MD5 checksum file also. MD5 utilities are available for Windows, Linux, and macOS operating systems.


On Linux, verify with:

md5sum --check CloudBeesFlow-<version>.md5

Most Linux installations provide an md5sum command for calculating MD5 prompt digests.
