    Hi Cécile,

    Sorry for the delayed reply. I was looking for one of our ARA experts to provide you  the suitable answer; find below his answer:

    You can upload the new action packs using the APM tool (Automic package manager). The APM tool is installed in the folder \PackageManager\bin of the ARA install directory. You will find more information in the documentation “Application.Release.Automation_6_0_0_INSTALLATION_GUIDE_en.pdf” §5.2.11

    You can also type APM help to get the list of actions. To download something you need to execute an update first before executing the download command like this

    APM update

    APM search

    APM install <package name>

     APM will download the package from the Automic repository. You need an internet connection and a user password to access the repository. Contact the support or your representative to get an access if you don’t have one already.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I managed to retrieve the index of the GIT . However, when I want to install, it says my account has no access to Automic.Action.Packs directory on the FTP . I always expect a return of Support about it

    Hi Cecile,

    If you are seeing this message or something similar like this (below) then yes your current account does not have access to the FTP site for it to retrieve the actions packages.

    Error: Cannot change working directory to: /Automic.Action.Packs

    A workaround to this, is to download the package it self then run the command to point it to the package you have downloaded (this will bypass the issue, as you won't need to retrieve the file via the

    The Actions Package file are bundle together with there ARA package within the "Quick Start" at the download center.
    Please Navigate to:

    On this "Quick Start" tab/page, please click on the 11.2 under where it said 'Automic Release Automation"
    Then download the 1.8GB file.  This will contain the AE, ARA, ECC, the actions package as well a few other component that AE/ECC can utilize.

    After you unzip the file, the Packages file will be in the folder:  Automic.Release.Automation_11.2.1_2016-02-12\Action.Packs

    You can use the following syntax to install the package (See example from the manual)
    apm install --from-file <path to the package archive or directory>

    Hi Luu,

    We have been having issue downloading some files from the links in Mainly PCK.ITPA_SHARED and PCK.AUTOMIC_FILESYSTEM. After logging in and entering the link in the address bar, the browser takes us back to download main page. We also don't have access to ARA 11.2, with the page giving us "Please contact your account manager" message.

    If you are not currently license for ARA, you will need to contact your account manager to discuss this options.

    In Kailun case, we were able to get the file sent to Kailun and with the Account Manager approval :)

    As of Monday, April 4 all action packs are available for download through Automic Marketplace. Also, we have released an extension to the Automic Web Interface (ECC), called Plugin Manager. Plugin Manager provides all common functionality of the APM command line tool, and provides you with a much easier experience for downloading and deploying Action Packs.
    • Install Plugin Manager (this requires the latest ARA Service Pack, eg 11.2.2)
    • Login to Automic Marketplace using your support credentials
    • Download the Action Packs of choice
    • Deploy using the Plugin Manager
    Also, see this video for a demonstration.
