System Tools and Scripting Plugins → FileUtils Plugin → Synchronize Directories Step
This step moves any files in a source directory that are not yet in the destination directory to the destination and deletes files in the destination that are not in the source. Synchronization is based on file date-time stamp.
|Source Directory||The directory to synchronize|
|Destination Directories||Specify a new-line-separated list of directories to which to sync|
Specify a comma or space-separated list of patterns of files to include.
Pattern Matching Rules:
* matches zero or more characters
? matches one character
** matches zero or more directories
*.java - matches .java, x.java, and FooBar.java
?.java - matches x.java, A.java
**/*.txt - matches all txt files recursively
**/CVS/* - matches all files in CVS directories anywhere in the directory tree
org/apache/jakarta/** - matches all files in the org/apache/jakarta directory tree
org/apache/**/CVS/* - matches all files in CVS directories anywhere in the in the directory tree under org/apache/
**/test/** - matches all files that have a test element in their path, including test as a filename
|Overwrite||Overwrite destination files even if they are newer than source files.|
|Exclude Files||Specify a comma or space-separated list of patterns of files to exclude. Pattern matching rules are the same as those listed in Include Files.|
