Javelin error "Publish action failed, action name: <xyz>, HOST actions are not enabled"


Article ID: 5330


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


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?

TDM 3.8 and later


Edit your 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:
