Managing External Source Configuration Types

You can load, view information about, and delete external source configuration types in the Automation > Source Config Type page.

  • External source configuration types enable closer interaction between Deployment Automation and the tool being accessed by the source configuration type. If Copy to CodeStation is not selected for these types, you can use the corresponding plugin to download artifacts directly from that tool.
  • Custom source configuration types can be developed by Java programmers using the external source configuration type architecture.

For information on creating and loading custom external source configuration types, see Custom source configuration types.

Note: Deployment Automation includes several built-in source configuration types that are installed with the product. These are automatically available when creating components and include external and non-external source configuration types. See Source configuration types.
