A Note Before You Begin

You can read the walk-through without actually performing the steps, or you can perform them as you read along.

If you want to perform the steps as we go, do the following before starting:

  1. Ensure that you have access to a Deployment Automation server that has at least one active and connected agent. For the walk-through, the agent can be installed on the same machine where the server is installed.
  2. Create a directory somewhere on your local system and name it: helloWorld.
  3. Within this helloWorld directory, create a subdirectory and name it version1.
  4. Within the version1 subdirectory create and save five text-type files and name them artifact1.txt, artifact2.txt, and so on.

    These five files represent the artifacts that you will be loading into Deployment Automation and then deploying. You will be creating a component that contains these files.
