How to include multiple files to deploy using this module?

HI @nishad1092 this update modules is specifically for deploying single files. You may be looking for:



Sure @drewmoseley, It looks good.

I have another query, so I just deployed a directory of two python file using directory module, and then I would like to execute this .py file, so I’m trying to execute it through script module by simple bash script to python run the file. But it isn’t getting deployed nor gettign executed. ? tell me if Im doing wrong or is there any other way?

Hi @drewmoseley,

I looked over this, It worked just fine, But one glitch, Few deployments went just fine, But whenever a deployment is failed or aborted, then the current artifact is show with “Inconsistent” tag, and also device isn’t syncing in real time after this, I had to restart manually.

Sir, Why is this? How to resolve it, or is this is a known bug\issue ? Because if a update fails, which might happen right, in that scenario, one can’t access the device becuase it isn’t realtime sycned and because of this, im not able to further deploy until i manually restart the device.

Following the tutorial provided step by step I have generated a single file artifact, however when I try to use this for a deployment I get the following error from the device:

The JSON contained within the type-info file in the artifact is as follows;


Why is this not working as expected?

As a side note - the documentation on using the single-file-artifact-gen here seems very outdated and does not work since the --software-version and --software-name arguments are seemingly unsupported.
