Storing reusable post-processing scripts#

You can store post-processing scripts on the server so you can reuse them in component processes and in generic processes.

When a step finishes, the agent runs the post-processing script for that step. When the agent runs the script, it first loads the server log file. It finds the exit code property of the target step with regular expressions that are defined in the script. It then applies any actions that are defined in the script before it runs the next step.

The HCL™ Launch server log file is normally found in the following location: server_installation_directory/var/log/deployserver.out.

    Post-processing scripts must set the Status property to specify the status of the script. The script can specify any value for the Status property. For example, to specify that the script was a success, run the following command in the post-processing script:
