Extract an artifact bundle

Adding or creating an artifact bundle does not actually create the artifacts on the appliance. Perform an extract operation on the artifact bundle to add the artifacts on the appliance.


Infrastructure administrator and Software administrator

  1. From the main menu, select Artifact Bundles.
  2. From the master pane of the Artifact bundles screen, select an artifact bundle.
  3. Select Extract from the Actions menu to add the artifacts available in the bundle on the appliance.
  4. You can extract an artifact bundle multiple times.
  5. Click OK on the extract dialog to proceed with the extract operation, when there are no name conflicts.
    During this process all the artifacts will be analyzed for naming conflicts. Depending upon the size of the artifact bundle, this may take some time. If you click OK, the validation process starts.

The result of the validation process might have the following two scenarios:
  • Name conflict between the artifacts in the bundle and appliance:

    In this scenario, another confirmatory dialog box appears which lists all the conflicted artifacts that are renamed. You need to confirm for extraction.

  • All the artifacts are already present in the appliance:

    In this scenario, an information dialog box appears which informs that all the artifacts are already being extracted and nothing will be extracted from this bundle.

If there are name conflicts,
  • The Extract dialog displays a summary listing of all the artifacts having name conflicts.

  • Analyze the summary before proceeding to the extract operation.

  • The artifacts in the bundle are renamed only after you confirm as they are copied on the appliance. If the existing artifacts on the appliance match the artifacts being extracted, the artifacts are not copied to the appliance.
