Access PSU repository

Is there a way to access PSU’s repository, either privately or publicly, via a Git client? If so, how?

I’d like to have a local clone of the repository.


Are you using Git sync? If not, then the repository is just a local folder within PowerShell Universal. Git sync would enable you to sync and clone it locally via git.

The Git sync feature is already syncing to an Azure DevOps repo. I pull that repo down to my laptop so I have another copy of it in case the **** hits the fan, and would like to do the same with the repo in PSU (for the same reason). Is there a path I can go to, to access the PSU repo, like https://psu.server.internal/git or something along those lines?

Not built in but you could create a published folder that servers the repository directory. Something like:

New-PSUPublishedFolder -Path C:\ProgramData\UniversalAutomation\Repository -RequestPath /git -Authentication -Roles Administrator

EDIT: On second thought, that might not really do it since you’d have to access the files one at a time.

You could use git bundle to create a single file from the PSU repo.

Then you could serve that over a published folder. You would need to run the git bundle on the PSU server in a script or something. You could also do it with an API where when you call the API, it runs git bundle and then returns the bundle file.

That could work. Thanks.
