Azure Blob: Manage File Transfers
The integration for Azure Blob Storage allows secure transfer of files from Azure Blob Storage containers and folders.Storing data in the cloud becomes an integral part of most modern IT landscapes. With the Stonebranch Universal Automation Center, you can securely automate your AWS, Azure, Google, and MinIO file transfers and integrate them into your existing scheduling flows. Key Features: The following file transfer commands are supported: Upload file(s) to an Azure Blob Storage container. Download file(s) from an Azure Blob Storage container. Transfer files between Azure Blob Storage containers. List objects in an Azure Blob Storage container. Delete object(s) in an Azure Blob Storage container. List Azure Blob Storage container names. Create an Azure Blob Storage container. File transfer can be triggered by a third-party application using the Universal Automation Center RESTfull web service API: REST API. The integration for Azure Blob Storage can be integrated into any existing scheduling workflow in the same way as any standard Linux or Windows task type. Security is ensured by using the HTTPS protocol with support for an optional proxy server. Supports Azure token-based Shared Access Signature (SAS). No Universal Agent needs to be installed on the Azure cloud – the communication goes via HTTPS.
Hadoop: HDFS File Monitoring and Triggering
This integration allows users to monitor a file on the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), then have the option to trigger an action. If the file is found, the file monitor can either go to success or launch a task in the Stonebranch Universal Automation Center. It's also possible to run the task monitor in auto-restart mode, which means it can restart itself automatically after finding a file. Key Features: Uses the Python HDFS module, which calls the Hadoop WebHDFS REST API. Supports Universal agent for both Linux/Unix and Windows. However, it has been currently only tested against a Linux agent. Select different log-levels, e.g., info and debug. All passwords are encrypted using Universal Controller credentials. Currently only the InsecureClient (the default) is implemented. The TokenClient can be implemented upon request. Currently only direct file matches are implemented, as this is the standard functionality supported by the Python HDFS module. A scan for files using wildcards (*) or regular expressions can be implemented upon request.

Kubernetes: Automate Container Operations
This integration allows users to run Kubernetes and perform the list (get), create, delete, and replace functions. Key Features: This task is delivered as a built-in Universal Template from the Stonebranch Universal Controller (UC) release 188.8.131.52 and higher. Documentation is included in the UC 6.9 product documentation. It provides the ability to automate Kubernetes container operations by providing tasks for the following Kubernetes functions: list, create, delete, and replace for Kubernetes Pods, Deployments, and Namespaces.
Kubernetes: Hybrid File Transfer
Configure and deploy integrations within Pods. Automate secure file transfers of data between on-prem, private, and public cloud platforms and applications. Trigger transfers in real-time based on system events. Break down data silos. This solution is used to pre-configure Stonebranch Universal Agents to work with Kubernetes. You may configure any number of agents with this solution. Configured agents are used for secure file transfers between any solutions running on Red Hat OpenShift and any platforms or applications that are not. This includes moving data between the mainframe and the cloud in a hybrid IT environment.This product is available as a certified operator from the Red Hat Marketplace. For ease of access, you may alternatively download the solution directly from the Red Hat OpenShift console. There is a free trial available, so go ahead and take it out for a spin. Key Features: Hybrid file transfer for OpenShift: Automate the transfer of data back and forth between your mainframe, on-prem servers, cloud storage, virtual servers, and any application running on OpenShift. High security for internal and external file transfers: Battle-tested encryption ensures files are secure across both internal transfers and transfers with external third-party applications and platforms. Real-time file transfers with event-vased triggers: With event-driven automation technology, you will achieve real-time automation across your entire hybrid IT environment. Event-based triggers include file monitors, email monitors, application monitors, and many more. Of course, you may also use time-based triggers. Real-time monitoring and auditing: Real-time monitoring and auditing of the entire file transfer process and centralized logging of all activities make the movement of data easy to track and virtually audit-proof. Automate and schedule workloads: Use a visual drag-and-drop workflow editor to automate and schedule jobs/workloads across any application and platform. Easily combine the power of the Stonebranch Universal Controller (UC) with Universal Agents and Red Hat OpenShift Pods. The benefits of using UC to schedule jobs/workloads for an application deployed on OpenShift include highly reduced resource consumption, scalability and performance, fast deployment, and testing. Integrate OpenShift with any other applications or platforms: By running a Universal Agent within an OpenShift Pod, you are able to take advantage of the many integrations that run through the Stonebranch platform. This means you can connect with a variety of applications and platforms that span categories like DevOps, Big Data, ERP, CRM, Infrastructure, and other business applications. Example Use Cases: Transfer files from the mainframe to all started OpenShift Pods related to an application. Transfer files from an application in OpenShift to an application within the internal IT landscape, e.g., SAP business warehouse. Transfer a file from any cloud storage to all OpenShift Pods related to an app (and vice versa). Trigger a file transfer from a third-party web app located in an OpenPaaS landscape. How does it work? Any file transfer can be triggered by calling the REST API of the UC. Essentially, you can start a file transfer workflow from any application, independent of whether it runs on a (virtual) server, mainframe, or in a Pod. Once a Pod is started, the sidecar container is also started, and the Universal Agent of the sidecar container automatically registers to a UC agent cluster specific for the application. For each OpenShift application, one UC agent cluster is created. As soon as the Universal Agent of the sidecar container is assigned to the related UC agent cluster, all related Pods are able to send and receive files from any other Universal Agent installed on a server, either on the mainframe or agentless from any cloud storage.
UAC Solution Pack: Dynamic Container File Monitoring and File Transfer
This integration and associated task templates provide a dynamic file monitoring and file transfer solution for containerized applications running in any container-management solution such as Red Hat OpenShift or Kubernetes. Key Features: Dynamically create and launch an agent file monitor trigger each time specific containers are started. Transfer files from the containers. Clean up agent file monitor triggers each time specific containers are stopped.
UAC Utility: Run a Command/Script on a Remote SSH Server
This integration allows users to run a command or Stonebranch Universal Controller (UC) data script on a remote SSH server. It enables the execution of commands and scripts from the UC script library on a remote Unix/Linux or Windows SSH server. Key Features: Ends with the exit code from the remote command/script. Both 'stdout' and 'stderr' from the remote task are returned to the integration 'stdout'. The 'stderr' is used for messages from the integration itself. Tested with the Universal Agent bundled Python distribution.Set different log-levels for the integration, providing you amounts of information to suit your needs. Supports both Linux/Unix and Windows. Additional Information: Users should note that this integration is unable to provide the following functionalities that are typically available for tasks that execute on a Universal Agent: No agent visibility, status, or alerting. The remote command or script cannot be cancelled from the controller interface. Canceling the SSH task will only cancel the integration Python script that initiates the SSH session. No fault-tolerant functionality. No clustering, load balancing, or broadcast functionality.
