Introducing: excludes for data synchronization in VM actions
To give you even more freedom in defining your workflows, we added the option to exclude specific paths, files, or file types that are a part of the initially defined synchronization scope.
All actions from the VM category offer synchronization with the pipeline's filesystem at two points in time:
- before the action is run
- after the action is run
The scope of the synchronization is defined by choosing the paths which are subject to the synchronization.
- This feature is available for all actions from the Virtual Machine category.
- You can define multiple excludes for every synchronization path.
To try this feature out, add one of the actions from the Virtual Machine category to your pipeline:

Switch to the action's second tab to adjust the synchronization paths. Click the hamburger icon to show additional options and select "Ignore" to start defining the paths, files, or file types you want to exclude from the synchronization process.

Now you can choose the files you want to use in your builds with the precision of a sniper! 🎯
