smb:\\ scheme followed by the hostname or IP address and folder name. For example,
If you want to specify a folder in the URL, you can enter the folder using the
\myFolder format, such as
smb:\\22.214.171.124\myFolder. Typically, you will specify the folder when you use the SMB Artifact Server as an Artifact Source for a Service.
Step 4: Domain
Enter the Windows domain where the host containing the shared folder is located.
Step 5: Username and Password
Use a user account that has permissions to access the shared folder.
For secrets and other sensitive settings, select or create a new Harness Encrypted Text secret.
Usage Scope is determined by the secret you selected.
Review: Adding Samba Server to a Service
When you use the SMB Artifact Server as an Artifact Source for a Service, you can specify a file or a folder for the artifact. This allows a folder to be copied to the deployment target host by the Harness Delegate. Here is the SMB Artifact Source dialog:
In Artifact Path, you can specify a file or folder by name or using wildcards. The following are examples for matching different files and folders:
- todo-*zip - All matching files, such todo-1.0.zip, todo-2.0.zip.
- test/*zip - All zip files under test folder.
- test/1* - All folders under test folder starting with 1.
- test/* - All folders under test folder.
