Filesystem Management

This plugin allows you to manage folders on target servers. You can snapshot a folder structure, by giving the top level directory path and a set of filesets to include/exclude for both configuration and binary files. This snapshot set of files can be compared over time (comparison of checksums for the binary filesets) to determine configuration drifts.

The filesets can be templated and parameterised, using environment specific data dictionary files and packaged up for deployment to other targets, thus enabling filesystem files to be stored in the SCM tool on the framework server, managed centrally and deployed out to target servers just as you would for code.
