Task Monitor Clean Up in XL Deploy


Over time it is possible to collect XL Deploy tasks that have not been closed and archived properly. A small CLI script can make sure that your completed XL Deploy tasks are all archived. Normally when a deployment is executed in XL Deploy it will be archived so you can review the status of the deployment later. Sometimes these tasks don't automatically archive and will remain the XL Deploy Task Monitor.  import com.xebialabs.deployit.engine.api.execution.TaskExecutionState as TaskExecutionStatetaskList = task2.getAllCurrentTasks()for task in taskList: if task.state == TaskExecutionState.EXECUTED : print "Archive : %s %s %s %s" % (, task.description, task.owner, task.state ) task2.archive( ) elif task.state == TaskExecutionState.FAILED : print "Canceling: %s %s %s %s" % (, task.description, task.owner, task.state ) task2.cancel( ) else: print "---------: %s %s %s %s" % (, task.description, task.owner, task.state ) # End if # End for  An example of the output of this script is as follows:  [localhost bin]$ ./ -q -f `pwd`/ Username: admin Password: Canceling: 1f92fe37-e5d2-42b0-ad0c-717c316a6174 Initial deployment of Environments/IBMPortletApp admin FAILED Canceling: c901320f-7048-4b87-b3e4-abeaea8d2ac1 Initial deployment of Environments/BasicFilePlugin admin FAILED ---------: 20809f4d-3db5-4bc7-92df-dcd2d482ce75 Initial deployment of Environments/LocalEnv/variables admin STOPPED
