Standard Plug-ins

Serena Release Automation also includes a standard set of automation steps that can be used to add additional automation to any process. These will typically be used for advanced processes or where there is no standard integration step available from one of the integrations.

Shell Integration

The Shell integration consists of a single step that you can include in any deployment process or other process. The most common use case opening and running a shell script on the target machine. If the step is used within a larger process, ensure that you set the order correctly. For example, if you have to run a shell script prior to executing another process, you will need to add the Shell step above the other step.

Serena Package Manager

This is for advanced usage. The steps work in conjunction with Serena Release Automation to create and manage application packages for deployments. These steps will not generally be used as part of a regular deployment.
