Objects

Objects are files that can be placed into a build environment just after the creation of the build's driver.

Creating an object

Objects a created from the Objects link the dashboard's sidebar, and by clicking the Create button in the top right hand corner.

Objects can be any file that is within the size limit configured by the Djinn server.

Objects can be grouped in a namespace for use by other users who have access to that same namespace. If the namespace being specified does not exist during image creation then it will be created on the fly.

Using an object

Once an object has been uploaded you can use it simply by specifying the name you gave that object in the build manifest via the objects property,

objects:
- my-object

you can use the => notation to specify the name of the object during placement and the location where it should be placed.

objects:
- my-object => /var/lib/object
