Alienbrain Action

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Alienbrain action creates a step to automate access to the Avid Technology Alienbrain version control system.  This action provides several screens for configuring repository commands.


When the step is built, this action invokes the Alienbrain command-line executable to perform the requested operation.

This action requires the Alienbrain client command-line tool to be installed.  It has been tested with Alienbrain versions 7 and 8 and may work with other versions as well.


Some fields do not apply to all commands, and some fields are required for certain commands (if ab prompts for input in the build output, one of the required fields is missing).  See the Alienbrain The Command Line Tool for more details on the available commands and flags.


Note: By default, this action is not displayed (existing steps will still be displayed in the Step panes and will build normally).  To show all hidden actions, right-click in the Actions pane and choose Show Hidden.
