Once you have prepared
the batch file, you need to create the manifest file that lists the
jobs that you want to deploy. The manifest file should be formatted
as a standard text file, but name and extension do not matter. Each
line of the manifest file will be deployed individually. A line can
specify a directory to deploy, a specific job to deploy, or a regular
expression to deploy.
When you specify a directory,
all of the jobs within that directory are deployed. When you specify
a specific job, only the matching job is deployed (if it exists).
When you specify a regular expression, any job in the given path that
matches the regular expression passed in by the user is deployed.
You can also deploy jobs recursively by adding the argument -r
to the end of the line. When recursion is
enabled, all subdirectories of the given directory are deployed in
the same manner as the given directory.
Perform the following
steps to prepare the manifest:
Create a new text file
to contain the manifest and save in the location specified in the
batch file. Note that you can also modify one of the sample manifest
files provided in the SASHomeSASDataIntegrationStudio4.3batchdeploy
Enter the information
about the jobs that you want to deploy. For example, samplemanifest2
contains the following information:
