All the settings required for file transfer, i.e. host name, username, protocol etc., can be grouped in a profile and stored in a YADE configuration file.


Profiles are used to group the configuration items required for a file transfer:

  • Use of profiles
    • YADE supports a terrific number of file transfer parameters. Each parameter can be specified on the command line or as a job parameter. However, it would be a tedious task to create a where-used list to verfiy what parameters are used by what file transfer configuration.
    • Profiles allow the grouping of configuration items that leverages command line usage. Specifying the YADE configuration file and the profile to be used is sufficient to effect a file transfer operation.
  • Use of profile fragments
    • Profiles can be divided into fragments, with "include" statements being used to assemble fragments together.
    • Cascaded fragments allow individual configuration items as e.g. a host name to be specified just once and to be reused by a number of other fragments.
  • Use with the command line and with JobScheduler
    • If file transfer configurations are used with both the YADE Command line Interface and with the JobScheduler YADE JITL Job then it is preferable to store them in a central configuration file as a profile to make that profile reusable for both environments.
