Issue/Introduction

When I run a flow in Javelin that includes a post-publish action defined from the TDM portal, I am seeing the error “Publish action failed, action name: <xyz>, action type Post-Publish, action code type HOST, HOST actions are not enabled. Contact your administrator”.

How can I resolve this issue?

Cause

A property in the application.properties file for TDM Portal has to be configured.

Environment

TDM 3.8 and later

Resolution

Edit your application.properties file that is by default under "C:\Program Files\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\conf" and enable host actions by updating (or adding it if it does not exist) this entry: 

tdmweb.enableHostActions=true
