unable to Import job in rundeck through curl command from local directory or AWS S3

+2 votes

I used this curl command to import a test.xml job to rundeck but it's not working.

curl -v "X-Rundeck-Auth-Token:XXXXX" -F xmlBatch=@"/home/ec2-user/test.xml" --insecure https://hostaname:4443/api/14/project/DistributedArchitecture/jobs/import

This error comes up on the Linux box:

I had the same issue. I used this command.

 curl -v -H x-rundeck-auth-token:<YOUR TOKEN> http://RUNDECK-SERVER:4440/api/16/project/<Job-Name>/jobs/import -F xmlBatch=@"job.xml" 

this is what my job.xml looks like

<description>Job Description here!!</description>
<sequence keepgoing='false' strategy='node-first'>
    <exec>ls --all</exec>

This should list all in a target.
Hope this helps.

You can use the S3 log storage plugin. This is a plugin for Rundeck that uses Amazon S3 to store execution log files, for backup or for cloud-friendly behavior.

Have a look at this blog for detailed explaination:
