How do I pull a plastic repo on an ec2 client?

Recommended Posts

We have a unity repo on the cloud and are trying to pull that repo onto a linux ec2 instance. Is it possible to do this? What client tools do I use and is there extra configuration of the cloud repo that is required?


Thank you.

Yes, you can pull your repo to the ec2 instance, you need to install the plastic client for your distro https://www.plasticscm.com/plastic-for-linux and then configure the cloud repo and credentials like here https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/administration/plastic-scm-version-control-administrator-guide#Installation-Linux. Then you can use the command line (https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/cli/plastic-scm-version-control-cli-guide#Introduction) to select and pull the desired repository in a workspace.

Is is also possible to use the API REST when the client is already installed given that you have a cloud subscription https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/restapi/plastic-scm-version-control-rest-api-guide#Repositorycontents

There shouldn't be necessary any additional configuration to the cloud repo.

I've run through the instructions at https://www.plasticscm.com/plastic-for-linux.

I'm on a Debian 10.0 Instance.

When I run this step:

sudo apt-get install plasticscm-complete


I get this error:

admin@ip-172-31-4-71:~$ sudo apt-get install plasticscm-complete
