helloWorld: Component Process

Once a component has been created and a version imported, a process to deploy the artifacts—called a component process—is defined.

To Configure the helloWorld Component Process:

  1. Display the Create New Process dialog for the helloWorld component Home > Components > helloWorld > Processes > Create New Process.

    Create New Process dialog

    Create New Process

  2. In the Create New Process dialog, enter a name in the Name field.

    The name and description typically reflect the component's content and process type.

  3. Enter a meaningful description in the description field.

    If the process will be used by several applications, you can specify that here.

  4. Accept the default values for the other fields.

    You might be wondering what the Default Working Directory field does. This field points to the working directory (for temporary files, etc.) used by the agent running the process. The default value resolves to agent_directory\work\component_name_directory. The default properties work for most components; you might need to change it if a component process cannot be run at the agent's location.

When you are done, save your work.

So far you have created a place-holder for the actual process you will define next. The name you gave the process is listed on the component's Process pane. A component can have any number of processes defined for it.
