This thread refers.
I have a UDP where I would like to process a Harvest item (execute a program or compiler against it, copy it to various locations etc.).
It's working for my UDP's that run on agents, because I pass the "Version" system variable and process it to get the file name. From there I'm able to process the file normally, because I keep reference directories in sync on those agent servers.
I would now like to do the same from a UDP on a local client machine. How will I achieve this, since I can't keep a reference directory on the local machine? I've thought of invoking "hco" for read (Harvest check-out for read) to the client machine as a pre-linked UDP, but I don't have a system variable for the file name (which is the problem I have in the thread mentioned above) to pass to the "hco" program.
Another option is to invoke a local batch script, passing the "version" variable, then extract the filename from the variable, then invoking hco, and then continuing with the rest of my processing, but this just seems excessive to achieve a relatively simple task.
The "hco" action requires a viewpath parameter. The [viewpath] system variable is not available from a UDP, only check-in and check-out. When I try to use it from my UDP, Harvest responds with "Missing Option or Argument for: -vp"
Thanks for the response.
We are reviewing and will get back with a response on this.
Thanks for your patience.
Can we have a quick call this week to discuss further on this and then we will try to assist you .
Please let us know and we will initiate a mail communication regarding date/timing.
Yes, absolutely. Let's discuss a time via email like you suggested.
I have sent an e-mail communication proposing the dates to meet.
Please review and let us know.
Thanks for joining the call today and clarifications
Please do send the snippets of your usage in a format possible for you.
It seems you are looking at viewpath system variable availability from the UDP definition scope
Presently ,it fetches value only during Check out and Check in operations
We are reviewing the possibility and will keep you posted
Please do share the usage snippets for detailed context and next steps discussion
Is "hrefresh" still available? That utility should be able to support a reference dir on a local machine.
Hi Milton, I can't find anything in the documentation about using hrefresh with a local client directory.
