aptly task run

Command runs an aptly task, namely a sequence of atomic aptly commands within a single thread.

The commands are run sequentially. If one returns an error, the remaining commands in the queue will not run.

Usage:

$  aptly task run <command1>, <command2>, ...

or:

$  aptly task run
   > <command1>
   > <command2>
   > ...
   >

or:

$ aptly task -filename="filename.txt"

The user can choose between three different ways to run an aptly task:

  1. If multiple args are passed, aptly task run assumes it’s a sequence of aptly commands separated by a comma ,
  2. If no args are passed, then aptly task run assumes the use wants to input the commands manually falling into a kind of shell, where the user can type one command per line leaving a blank one when finished.
  3. If the -filename="filename.txt" flag is set, aptly task run will run the commands contained in the text file. The commands must be written on separate lines.

Example:

$ aptly task run repo create local, repo add local jenkins_1.575_all.deb, snapshot create snap1 from repo local, snapshot verify -architectures=amd64 snap1, publish snapshot -distribution=main -architectures=amd64 snap1, serve
