This tab of the Alienbrain action configures server and command information.


Server: The server containing the repository (optional).


Username: The username to login with (optional).


Password: Password of the user (optional).


Project: Project to operate on (optional).


Session ID: The name of the session to create for the specified logon information, or the ID of a previously-created session to use for this command (optional).


Command: The command to perform (required).  Most common operations are available in the drop-down list.  Other operations may also work but are not explicitly supported.  See the Alienbrain The Command Line Tool for more details on the available commands.


Filenames or directories: One or more files, directories, or wildcards to perform the command on, each on a separate line (optional).


Non-recursive: If this option is checked, directories will not be recursively processed.


Label: The label to use for the command (optional).


Directory for local files: This specifies the working directory for the command (optional).  If the field is left empty, the user's current working directory will be used instead (for reliability, especially with automated builds, it is highly recommended that the path be specified here).
