Documentation

Known Issues

Action Orchestrator has the following known issues for this release:

  • Currently the table types can be created without columns. The workflow fails to create instances, when table types without columns are used in the workflows.

  • When you add a SSH script node and define a script argument with a space in it, then you attempt to access that script argument by $1 (the first argument).

    • For example, it only returns the first character in the argument list, not your first defined script argument.

      So if your script argument is -e package 'nano' and your ssh script has:

      chef-apply $1

      You will only get chef-apply package sent.
