Update: 01-09-2016: This jar is a little out of date as newer navigator builds require a little more for authentication.. Will post an update soon.
Last month i shared a tool that i’ve been using to automatically update code modules & event actions using the IBM Filenet Content Engine api. This month it’s time to share a tool i’ve created to automatically install or update IBM Content Navigator plugins.
Those working with ICN know the pain of navigating to the plugin page, loading, saving and refreshing – only later finding out that you re-loaded the wrong plugin.
So, in order to speed things up. Create the following batch instruction (in jenkins, or any build automation tool):
java -jar ICNPluginInstaller.jar "http://navigator:9080/navigator" "p8admin" "AYBABTU" "\\navigator\c$\IBM\plugins\cool plugin.jar"
The plugin uses the Navigator REST api to update or install the plugin, and has been tested to work on 2.0.2 fixpack 7 and 2.0.3 fixpack 5.
I’ll share the source shortly (after cleaning it up ;)). Until then you can find the .jar file here.
