Change Owner in BLPackage

Siddu Angadi



I have BLPackage, which does the file copy to TARGET Server which has Unix.


All file will be copied successfully, however the owner of files should be different, it installed ( Copied ) all the files with root user.


Is it possible to change the owner of the file before deployment?

    Yes, Its controlled by options in the Blpackage.

    Open the  blpackage and click on the fileentry ( a + symbol),

    on the right hand side you will see different properties/options

    one of them is Owner/Group ,like thsi

    Action Add

    ItemId 1.1.24

    Name .test

    Path /tmp

    Owner 001

    OwnerOption Ignore

    Group 001

    GroupOption Ignore

    Type Regular

    Permissions rw- r-- ---

    PermissionsOption Apply


    just select OnwerOption and GroupOption to Ignore,

    and it will create the file owned by user and group which actually deploys it, the user which is mapped to the role which has deployed the blpackage.

    Thank you very much Rohit.


    One more thing. I have added Folder into BLPAckage and If I change OwnerOption to ignore, will it updated to Child FIles of the folder?

    No, I think it gives you control over each individual file and folder.
