      Description

      We're attempting to post the build logs to an ftp server for archiving purposes before we delete them from the Jenkins server. So, we'd like to be able to use this plugin (unless you have a different solution ) to do so. I've tried various different values in the 'Source Files' field with no success, including absolute and relative paths:

      • "${WORKSPACE}/builds/Foo/."
      • ../builds/Foo/.

          Hi Noah,

          I consider this a feature, both for security and for ensuring the correct encapulation of the project.

          The following plugin will enable you to copy the logs from the master into the workspace (whether remote slave, or on the master), and then the Publish Over FTP Plugin can be used to send the files to the remote server.

          HTH,
          Bap.
