Files

With Files it's possible to deploy files to 'paid' devices.

Files are one type of asset, and refer to the following.

  • Device executable files
  • Configuration files for use on devices
  • Other types of files used on devices (like image and video files)

It's possible to, for example, execute shell scripts on a device or add configuration files to a device.

For executable files, it's possible to have the file executed when it is deployed to the device. Additionally, for any type of file, the Hook feature can be used to execute other files already deployed.

Only project Owner and Admin users can deploy files. A Collaborator user cannot deploy a file. Allowing only trusted users to deploy files helps prevent the deployment of untrusted files.
