CA Continuous Delivery Automation - Automation Engine

Issue/Introduction

When using the :ATTACH_RES command with the 'C' option, the files are transferred to the Agent with 777 permissions. This can be considered a compliance risk.

Cause

As designed, as the Agent will not know permissions of tasks attempting to access the 'C'lient wide resource. 

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

After the file has been transferred, the permissions can be manually changed and it will not overwrite unless the filesize changes.

Or, do not utilize 'C' and each task will transfer and remove the file after completion.
