Copy a specific folder from one step to another already installed

Hi all
I would like to copy a folder that is inside the root “D:\Octopus\Applications\Main\webapp2\\build” (Copy the carpeta Build only) to another application "D:\Octopus\Applications\Main\WebApp1\\App "found in previous steps.

how could I do this?


Hi Aldo,

Thanks for reaching out!

From your second step, you can reference the path of the first step by using the Output variable $OctopusParameters['Octopus.Action[FIRST STEP NAME].Output.Package.InstallationDirectoryPath']. This variable will give you the full path where the First Step deployed the app (in your case that would be D:\Octopus\Applications\Main\webapp2\ ). Then with some powershell magic you could do something like:

$FirstStepDeployPath = $OctopusParameters['Octopus.Action[NAME OF THE DEPLOY STEP].Output.Package.InstallationDirectoryPath']
$Destination = "C:\WhereverYouWantToSendTheFiles"

copy-item -path $firstStepDeployPath -Destination $destination

Let me know if that makes sense.

Kind regards,
