Cloudify provides you with a simple way for uploading resources to the manager
upload_resources: plugin_resources: - ... dsl_resources: - 'source_path': ... 'destination_path': ... parameters: fetch_timeout: ...
|plugin_resources||no||list||A list of wgn plugins (URLs or local paths) to be uploaded to the manager. More on plugins here.|
|dsl_resources||no||dict||A list of dictionaries each comprises a source_path and destination_path for each dsl_resource.|
|source_path||yes||string||The source path for the dsl resource.|
|destination_path||yes||string||A relative destination path for the resource (relative to the file server home dir).|
|parameters||no||dict||Describes the different parameters for the upload of resources.|
|fetch_timeout||no||int||3.3.1 FEATURE Max idle time (in seconds) while fetching any resource. Note that the timeout refers to an idle connection, and not the entire download process.|
The plugin_resources section uses the Plugins api to upload any plugin path specified. Every resource is a string representing either a local path or a URL.
All plugins uploaded to the manager blueprint should be in wgn format.
The dsl_resources section enables you to upload any resource needed for parsing blueprints. Every resource comprises source_path and destination_path. The source path is either a local path or a URL, and the destination path is relative to the home dir of the file server.
The value passed to
--task-retry-interval in the cli bootstrap command, apply to the resource fetching. Each resource is retried up to
--task-retries times, at intervals of
upload_resources: plugin_resources: - 'http://www.my-plugin.com/path/to/plugin.wgn' dsl_resources: - 'source_path': 'http://www.my-plugin.com/path/to/plugin.yaml' 'destination_path': '/path/to/local/plugin.yaml' parameters: fetch_timeout: 20
In this example we can see the upload of 2 different resources:
- In the
plugin_resourcessection, the plugin.wgn is being uploaded. This plugin will be used any time this plugin is needed by any blueprint.
- In the
dsl_resourcessection, the yaml file for that plugin is being retrieved from ‘http://www.my-plugin.com/path/to/plugin.yaml', and is being uploaded to the manager’s file server with the relative path of ‘/path/to/local/plugin.yaml’. This resource will be used anytime the manager parses a blueprint which references this plugin yaml file.
Retrieving each resource is limited to 20 seconds.
