What it does

This action synchronizes files between Git / GitHub / Bitbucket and a server using rsync.

How it works

The pipeline filesystem is used as source for the rsync operation. It means that the destination will be mirrored with: files fetched from the repository at selected revision, repository files overwritten by the pipeline actions, artifacts generated by the actions and static files uploaded to the filesystem.

Good to know

  • The pipeline filesystem is used as a the source, so apart from the files from the repository, the generated artifacts can be transferred to the target server as well
  • This action ignores Upload everything from scratch flag set on the pipeline execution
  • If you need to delete files on the target server that are not present in the pipeline filesystem, use the Delete extraneous files option instead
  • Be cautious about the remote path setting while using Delete extraneous files since it may break your server system in case of a mistake made
