Fetching log files using Unix?

Can we fetch the log files using Unix in parasoft?

Is it possible to connect the power broker using Unix in parasoft??

    Could you provide more information on what you are trying to do? Is SOAtest on the same machine as the log file you are trying to access? If not you could consider using the FTP Client to connect to another machine to get the log file. I am also not clear what you mean by "power broker" - can you explain?

    Hi sunil_subramanian

    generally speaking you should use External Tool from SOAtest.

    I suppose that you want to execute a few commands on remote system after login, and in such case you should use option "-m" from putty.exe.
    The -m option expects to be given a file name, and it will read a command from that file.
    For configuring External Tool see help for SOAtest, section "External"
    For more information about "-m" from putty see Putty's documentation ie: https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/docs.html

    PS. Why do you want to use putty? Maybe better will be to use plink.exe?

    If you need to use SSH to execute commands or download/upload files, consider using the FTP Client tool which supports SFTP/SSH commands. http://marketplace.parasoft.com also has a custom "SFTP Client Tool" extension that is similar to the built-in FTP Client tool but supports authentication using SSH keys instead of username/password.

    Hi Sunil, Chris here. A few days ago I sent you an email requesting a conversation. I think this would be a great opportunity to have a discussion with you about your SOAtest usage. Lets continue this discussion over the phone. We can update this post once we have decided the best path forward.
