remoteFileMetadataRename

The remoteFileMetadtaRename task renames file metadata across all components and projects in a workspace and is compatible with the Jazz Build Engine environment.

By default, all components in the workspace are included in the file search process. Exclude and include attributes can be specified to customize which components to use, and thereby, which files will be processed. File metadata is stored in Jazz source control management as properties or name value pairs. To designate which files to process and what properties to rename, nest remoteFileMetadataRenameRule elements within the remoteFileMetadataRename task.

The following table describes the remoteFileMetadataRename attributes.

Attribute Description Required

repositoryAddress

Address of the team repository to use. The value of this attribute is typically ${repositoryAddress} because that property is built-in when using the Jazz™ Build Engine.

Yes

userId

User ID for authentication to the repository. Requires password or passwordFile to be set.

Yes

certificateFile

The path to the file that contains the user's login certificate for authentication. Requires password or passwordFile to be set. You can specify certificateFile or repositoriesFile, but not both.

No

password

Password for the user ID for authentication to the repository. Either password or passwordFile can be provided, but not both.

No

passwordFile

The password file to use for authentication to the connection. You can create a suitable password file by invoking the Jazz Build Engine with the -createPasswordFile argument. You can only specify one password file. Either password or passwordFile can be provided, but not both.

No

smartCard

Whether to use the connected smart card for authentication (true or false). Requires userId to be set. For more information about smart card authentication, see Connecting to repositories and project areas.

No

failOnError

If true (the default), the task fails if it encounters an error. If false, some errors are ignored and the task is completed.

No

verbose

Specifies more message output. The default is false.

No

clean

Specify true to discard all current file properties. Valid values are true and false. The default is false.

No

exclude

A list of component names to exclude from the process. By default, all components in the workspace are included. This list is used to identify components that are defined to the workspace, but that should not be included when searching for files to process. The exclude attribute is optional. Both the exclude and include attributes can be specified on a build to identify which components to process when searching for files. Multiple components can be specified as s comma separated list.

No

include

A list of component names to include in the process. By default, all components in the workspace are included. This list is used to identify specific components that are defined to be workspace, that should be included when searching for files to process. The include attribute is optional. Both the exclude and include attributes can be specified on a build to identify which components to process when searching for files. Multiple components can be specified as a comma separated list.

No

workspaceUUID

The UUID of the workspace for the build. The value of this attribute is typically ${team.scm.workspaceUUID} because the property is build-in when using the Jazz Build Engine.

Yes

remoteFileMetadataRenameRule Elements

A remoteFileMetadataRenameRule element is specified in the remoteFileMetadataRename element. Each remoteFileMetadataRenameRule element identifies a file to process and a property to rename. At least one remoteFileMetadataRenameRule element is required.

The following table describes the valid remoteFileMetadataRenameRule attribute values.

Attribute Description Default Required

match

The regular expression to match against the string (zFolder name) (zFile name). For example, DOBOL/source.cbl.

None

Yes

projectName

The name of an SCM project for which this rule applies. This attribute can be used to limit the scope of a rule to a specific project. By default, rules apply to all projects.

None

No

name

The name of the file metadata property you want to delete when the regular expression matches the string (zFolder name)/(zFile name).

None

Yes

rename The new name of the file metadata property. None Yes

value

The value of the file metadata property. A value is optional If a value is specified, the current property value and the specified value must match for the property to be deleted. If a value is not specified, the property is deleted if found.

None

No

Note:
  • This task must be run in an eclipse environment.
  • The default behavior is to perform a file search for all components defined to the workspace.
  • A property value can be specified to selectively rename properties with the specified value.
  • Any file changes made by this task in a Jazz Build Engine environment needs to be delivered via SCM facilities to become permanent.

Example

Rename a file property

<!-- File Metadata Rename -->
<target name="remote" description="File Metadata Rename">

<im:remotefilemetadatarename
	repositoryAddress="${repositoryAddress}"
	userId="${repositoryUserId}"
	password="${repositoryPassword}"
	workspaceUUID="${team.scm.workspaceUUID}"
	include="com.ibm.ims.bpe"
	>

	<im:remoteFileMetadataRenamerule match=".*/BPEAQHT0\.asm" name="team.property" value="test.value" rename="test.new.property"/>
</im:remotefilemetadatarename>

</target>
