As a developer and object designer, you create and manage multiple versions of an object, export and import these versions to and from a remote repository, rollback changes to a previous version and have access to the Client's commit history. You can synchronize repositories across multiple nodes of a system to access your data and, simultaneously, ensure a collaborative working environment for all developers and object designers.
You can access the Version Control functionality from the Process Assembly, you can carry out the following operations:
Product: Automic Workload Automation
Release: 12.2 and superior
Version Control tools such as Github, Bitbucket
1/ Set up a Github Repo
2/ Set up SSH key: Automation Engine will communication with Github via a SSH key
+ Double check your Github email: It will be used when you create your SSH key.
+ (Additional Information 4) Create SSH key in your Automation Engine server
When generating the ssh key, make sure it is in a supported format and leave the passphrase empty
$ssh-keygen -m PEM -t rsa -b 4096 -C "[email protected]"
When you're prompted to "Enter a file in which to save the key," press Enter. This accepts the default file location.
Enter a file in which to save the key (/home/you/.ssh/id_rsa): [Press enter]
Start the ssh-agent in the background.
$eval "$(ssh-agent -s)"
Add your SSH private key to the ssh-agent. If you created your key with a different name, or if you are adding an existing key that has a different name, replace id_rsa in the command with the name of your private key file.
The result if you choose default key name and folder:
Make sure the known_hosts file contains an entry for your github or bitbucket server
+ (Additional Information 4) Add the public key (id_rsa.pub content) to your Github account.
3/ Automation Engine side:
Open UC_CLIENT_SETTINGS Variable and add the following keys:
+ REMOTE_REPOSITORY_URL - Setup the Github URL:
In case you are using Bitbucket, please define it as follows:
+ REPOSITORY_SSH_DIR - Setup the SSH directory that have your newly created SSH key:
If this parameter is not specified, the default SSH folder of the user that start Automation Engine will be used.
In this example it will be: /home/uc/.ssh
4/ Access the Version Control functionality from the Process Assembly and initialize your Automation Engine Client (Create Branch)
5/ The result in Github repo after you initialize your Automation Engine Client
