Shell Plugin

A shell is a command language interpreter that is usually included with operating systems. A shell script is a series of commands.

The Shell plugin enables you to run custom shell scripts during the deployment process. The most common use case for this plugin is opening and running a shell script on the target machine. If the step is used within a larger process, ensure that you set the order correctly. For example, if you have to run a shell script prior to executing another process, you will need to add the Shell step above the other step.
