3. FTP Task Parameters
Each FTP Task has the following parameters:
- FTP server URL
- Include pattern
- Exclude pattern
- Retry count
- Retry delay
3.1. FTP server URL
This URL must be specified in the form
|ftp||File Transfer Protocol||21|
|ftpes||File Transfer Protocol over SSL (explicit)||21|
|ftps||File Transfer Protocol over SSL (implicit)||990|
|sftp||SSH File Transfer Protocol||22|
If the path doesn't exist FTP Upload Task will create it.
Note: you can use Bamboo variables in the URL.
3.2. Clean up remote directory before upload
If this option is on then remote directory contents will be removed before upload. Default value is off.
3.3. Use shared credentials (since version 1.1.0)
This option controls whether to use shared credentials or specify credentials in the task. Shared credentials (username and password) can be configured on Bamboo administration page in Shared credentials section.
3.4. Shared credentials (since version 1.1.0)
Select shared credentials to use. You can manage them on Bamboo administration page.
This is a username for accessing the server. Leave it empty for anonymous access.
This is a password for accessing the server. Passwords are stored in Bamboo encrypted.
3.7. Include pattern
This is a comma separated list of files to be copied (you can use Ant style patterns). Leave it empty to copy everything.
3.8. Exclude pattern
This is a comma separated list of files NOT to be copied (you can use Ant style patterns). Exclude pattern is applied after include pattern.
By default the working directory is a plan directory. However it can be changed to any other relative directory. For example you can set it to the build output directory.
