Using CloudForge Publisher

What is CloudForge Publisher?

With CloudForge Publisher, you can quickly, via one click, publish your source code, content, images from your repositories to your hosted servers, Google App Engine, Amazone EC2, and other cloud providers.

Basic Concepts

  1. Publish Target - this is where you want to publish your content to.  It can be a server, a web site, a cloud provider like Google App Engine or Amazon
  2. Recipe - A recipe encapsulates all the actions needed to publish your content to a specific location.  For example, SVN FTP Deploy recipe will one click deploy your SVN repository to a FTP server.

Usage Example

Add CloudForge Publisher Service to your project. Select the Target type, enter name and description to your target

(optionally, depending on the type of the target, you can enter additional information like SSH settings, or Amazon keys)


Once you have your target created: Select a recipe > Enter settings to the recipe


Finally, to actually Publish: Click Publish on the Recipe


 - or From the Dashboard with one-click




Roles and Permissions

For Business Edition with Enterprise Roles and Security, there are two new roles that you can use:

Manage Targets and Recipes - this permission in the role grants the user ability to manage targets, recipes, and use the wizard to change recipe parameters.

Run Publisher - this permission in the role grants the user to view and use the Quick Publisher widget on the project dashboard.  That way, an user can run the publishing process without needing to see the parameters required to run the recipe.

For Personal Edition, only the person with the Administrator role can use Publisher.  Administrators, by defaults, are granted manage targets and recipes and run publisher roles.
