Post-processing scripts run after a component/generic process step finishes.
Typically, post-processing scripts check if expected results occur. It can examine the step’s output log and run commands based on the result.
Steps can have default post-processing scripts. These scripts are included with the plug-in.
You can override the default post-processing script for a step or provide a post-processing script for a step that does not have one.
Steps in component processes and generic processes can have post-processing scripts, but steps in application processes cannot.
Sometimes you might need to move your UrbanCode Deploy Source Configuration and Automation Plugins from one server to another one
Plugins are stored, as zip files, in:
Copy all plugin files you need, from the above directory of the first server, to below directory of the second server:
Restart the target server.
Log file will display loading of Plugins as in the excerpt below:

The Blueprint Designer is a separately-installed component that is included with the UrbanCode Deploy product suite.
While UrbanCode Deploy drives deployment automation of applications into existing environments, Blueprint Designer creates and provisions new environments in the cloud.
Blueprint Designer Licensing
The UrbanCode Blueprint Designer does not require separate or extra licenses. It can be used with all UrbanCode Deploy license scenarios.
Blueprint Designer provides a design tool to create full-stack environments using standard orchestration technologies, including
and OpenStack Heat . Terraform
This post shows the OpenStack Heat orchestration. Terraform will be discussed later.

In this post I’ll show you how to integrate GitHub with Jenkins and UrbanCode Deploy.
For my purpose, I cloned the
DataPower Configuration Manager (DCM) repository.
DCM is a package for dealing with IBM DataPower configuration management.
From the GitHub repository click on “Settings”:
and click on “Webhooks”

In this post I’m going to show you how to create a Generic uDeploy Process to manage Windows Services and how to use this Process as Template for Application Processes.
What we need is:
Below the Generic Process
Windows Service Stop/Start/Restart flow:

Let’s see how to install and configure a 2 node uDeploy cluster with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
First of all create 2 Linux Instances (if you are asking why not Microsoft Windows Server you can stop reading and go for a walk).
Choose your region and click on EC2, then “Launch Instance”:
Click next until “Configure Security Group”, then choose a name for your group like “uDeploy” and add rules to open inbound ports:
22, 8443, 7918, 7919 and 2049 like fig. below:

If your application has many components you can use “Tags” to simplify your processes and configurations.
In the Component page, you can associate a Component Tag with one or more components.
The example below shows an application with 10 components:

Who works everyday with IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment knows a state of facts: Different users cannot make changes on a WAS DM Cell at the same time.
Let’s look at how it can be possible acquire an exclusive lock on a WAS DM Cell with IBM UrbanCode Deploy.
We have two different applications on the same WAS DM Cell and we want to deploy both without worrying about which deploy start first.
Create everything you need on uDeploy: Applications, Components, Component Process, Application Process, Resources and Environments as in the figures below:
First Application: Pet Store
Pay Attention: The environment name is: WAS85 STAGING. I’ll put this name for every application is running into my WAS DM Cell of Staging.

In the first part of “
UrbanCode Deploy & JIRA Integration” post we left us with an unsolved question.
How to pass a Jira issue nr. (issue_id) to the application process flow?
is the solution. Application Process Properties
Go to Applications -> “Your Application” -> Processes -> “Your Application Process” -> Configuration -> Application Process Properties
Create the property:
Now run the process:
