when defining a deployment project which should deploy (among others) MWS assets, one has to define MWS servers. The servers are then used in the map step.
One of the attributes of an MWS server is “Root folder aliases”. In the docs (webMethods Deployer User’s Guide) this attribute is only mentioned in the chapter about runtime based deployment.
As I understand it, this is used to control what assets are displayed so the user can mark them for inclusion into the deployment set.
Does this parameter have any meaning for repository based deployment? In particular, when the project is created using the project automator?
In this case, the MWS server is specified via a “mwsalias” entry in the config file which can have a “rootFolderAliases” element. What good would this element be for in this scenario (nothing is selected manually here)?
