Hello,
this surely is a beginners question:
Using bolt, I want to download a file from one server and upload it to a another server. Problem: The function download_file uses a destination path relative to the project directory, but upload_file needs an absolute source path. How do I get this absolute source path?

Thanks for your help!

Kind regards
Helmut

Hi,

You can reference the actual path by using pwd:

bolt file upload $(pwd)/inventory.yaml /root/ -t login

Hth,
Martin

Hello Martin,

my problem was how to implement this in a plan.  In the meantime, a colleague told me to use <module_name>/downloads/<download_folder>/<source_servername>/<filename>  . This is fine for me.

Anyway: Thanks a lot for your answer!!!

Kind regards
Helmut
