How to See All Available Files in a Fleet#

Overview#

When running a Fleet, every Vessel that either generates or downloads files can share the contents with other Vessels in the Fleet. Sometimes it can be difficult to remember the names and locations of the files that are available. This how to guide will walk you through the steps to easily show all available files in a Fleet.

Steps#

Step 1 - Create a Vessel to List All Files#

  1. Create a Bash Vessel.
  2. Name your file list_files.sh
  3. Ensure the code section is set to Write and paste in ls -a -R. This script lists all files in every directory.
  4. Complete the remaining steps and save your Vessel.

Step 2 - Add the Vessel to Your Fleet#

  1. Navigate to the Fleet you want to see files in.
  2. Add the Vessel to the Fleet and connect it to existing Vessels. We recommend connecting it towards the end of the Fleet. Location matters!
  3. Save the Fleet.
  4. Click Run Now
  5. Once the Fleet has finished running, navigate to the Log for the Bash Vessel you just added. You should see an output that shows all of the available files in the Fleet.
