is it possible to set permissions on a folder outside the root using yml

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I have been trying to set file and folder permissions on my projects files and folders using yml. While it works for the files on my project folder, it does not work on the folder itself, or folders in the project folder. It also does not work on folders outside the root i.e. folders on the same level as the project folder. 

 

How may I achieve this ? 

 

Thanks all !

 

Project Structure:

/project ---
 |     -- folder1                // permissions not set
 |        |-- my-file-1.txt      // permissions set
 |        |-- my-file-2.txt      // permissions set
 |     -- folder2                // permissions not set
 |        |-- my-file-3.txt      // permissions set
 | -- my-file-4.txt              // permissions set
 | -- my-file-5.txt              // permissions set 
 | -- my-file-6.txt              // permissions set
 |
 |
 outside_root ---                // permissions not set for any files or folders
 |     -- folder3
 |        |-- out-file-1.txt
 |        |-- out-file-2.txt 
 |     -- folder4
 |        |-- out-file-3.txt
 |        |-- out-file-4.txt 
 | -- out-file-5.txt 

yml file :

version: 0.0
os: linux
files:
  - source: /project
    destination: /var/www/html
  - source: /outside_root
    destination: /var/www/outside_root
# For project directory
permissions:
  - object: /var/www/html
    owner: ec2-user
    group: apache
    mode: 755
    type:
    - directory
# For outside_root directory
    - object: /var/www/outside_root
    owner: ec2-user
    group: apache
    mode: 710
    type:
    - directory
# For project files
    - object: /var/www/project
    owner: ec2-user
    group: apache
    mode: 644
    type:
    - file
# For outside_root files
    - object: /var/www/outside_root
    owner: ec2-user
    group: apache
    mode: 640
    type:
    - file

Please remember to give context for people who don't know you're working with CodeDeploy.

 

It doesn't look like their permissions system is particularly powerful - since "directory" only applies to descendant directories and "file" only applies to immediate files, you would need a bunch of sections listing out each individual directory whose files you wanted to change permissions on.

 

Try deploying with a .tar/.tar.gz (and not a .zip) as those support specifying permissions inside the archive itself. No guarantee that CodeDeploy will keep the permissions on extraction, though.

 

Otherwise I think I would give up and use a post-install bash script (or individual commands without the script) to apply permissions as you want. Probably with a combination of find+xargs+chown/chmod.

Hi requinix !

Ya sorry, I'll keep that in mind next time. 

 

Thanks for the information. Then I'll go the manual route or create a post-install  bash as you suggest.  :thumb-up:

 

Thanks !
