Automation with content trust

Your automation systems that pull or build images can also work with trust. Any automation environment must set DOCKER CONTENT TRUST either manually or in a scripted fashion before processing images. DOCKER CONTENT TRUST ROOT PASSPHRASE DOCKER CONTENT TRUST REPOSITORY PASSPHRASE. Docker attempts to use the contents of these environment variables as passphrase for the keys. Docker push docker/trusttest:latest The push refers to a repository a9539b34a6ab: Image already exists b3dbab3810fc: Image already exists latest: digest: sha256:d149ab53f871 size: 3355 Signing and pushing trust metadata. 

When working directly with the Notary client, it uses its own set of environment variables. Before running the docker build command, you should set the environment variable DOCKER CONTENT TRUST either manually or in a scripted fashion. You cannot build an image that has a FROM that is not either present locally or signed. Docker build -t. docker/trusttest:testing. 

Using default tag: latest latest: Pulling from docker/trusttest b3dbab3810fc: Pull complete a9539b34a6ab: Pull complete Digest: sha256:d149ab53f871. Unable to process Dockerfile: No trust data for notrust trust, security, docker, documentation, automation.

Automation with Python and STAF/STAX

A simple solution to make the software build available to all the testing machines could be to copy it to a specific directory whenever a new file is available. 3 Copy a given file to a list of destination machines sequentially. Split() 15 16 # Copy the file to every requested machine and verify. 18 # to the md5 sum of the original file.19 for machine in args. 3 Copy a given file to a list of destination machines in parallel. Orig md5 = orig md5.37 38 def run(self):39 # Copy file to remote machine. Machine 41 42 # Calculate md5 sum of the file copied at the remote machine. STAF is implemented as a process which runs on every machine that provides services that may be used by clients to accomplish different tasks. 

Split() 17 18 # Copy the file to every requested machine and verify. The two basic services that are used in this example are PROCESS, which is used to launch processes on a machine the same way ssh was used in the python-only version of the example; and FS, which is used to copy files between different machines as scp was used in the python-only solution. GetName( )42 43 def run(self):44 # Copy file to remote machine. Machine)46 47 # Calculate md5 sum of the file copied at the remote machine.

IE Automation Library and Web Macro Recorder

The.Net WebBrowser class is actually an Internet Explorer control. You can add it to your Windows Forms application do display HTML content. Using WebBrowser class from C# code you can have access to HTML document but automating the IE control is not as easy as it should be. Browser events and timeouts: navigating, document complete. An asynchronous programming model: web automation code mixed with event handlers. 

HTML events – you’ll have to fire the right events so web pages will react properly. Open Twebst addresses all this issues with a consistent programming model and an integrated web recorder that assists you in generating web automation code. Basically, things work like this with Open Twebst:attach to WebBrowser control so you can use Twebst objects. Optionally you can register to OnCancel event so you can cancel web automation at any point generate web automation code with Open Twebst web recorder. Use the code in your C#/VB.Net Windows Forms project. 

Web automation code executes on UI thread but Open Twebst methods dispatch windows messages under the hood so the application does not freeze. OnCancel event is raised from time to time so you have a chance to stop automation code at any point.

Movable Ink Launches Automated Content Sourcing Tool For Emailers 03/14/2018

Movable Ink has introduced a service to help brands integrate content from multiple sources into their email campaigns. Automated Content Sourcing allows email marketers to design and format content from internal and external sources without developer involvement, the company says. They can achieve this using Studio, the firm’s drag-and-drop graphics editor, it adds. Content is often scattered across channels, resulting in bottlenecks as firms attempt to reformat and repurpose it, the firm continues. Import individual images, product information, prices, inventory levels and blocks of content from websites. 

Pull images and content from internal and external sources, including partner websites, with the help of CSV files or APIs. Integrate offers and data from such offer management tools as IBM Interact or Pega for Marketing. Combine email promotions with user-generated content and social posts. This is done, the firm says, with social curation tools that can be remixed and then layered over other images. Users can review personalized content to make sure it will render correctly in inboxes with an optional Litmus account, the company claims. 

It serves such brands as Delta, eBay, Spotify and The Wall Street Journal.

How to Automate Social Media: Build a Content Cannon And Load It with Social Ammo [VIDEO]

This post will show you how to automate social media posting to make social sharing more efficient and effective. How to get those posts into repeating rotation with a one-time effort. We’re going to fill our social streams with a consistent flow of well-timed posts. This will also be useful for anyone who wondered how to automate social postings or wondered how some accounts post so much so easily. These tools have link shorteners with click tracking so they can show you reports of which social posts got clicked the most. 

Now you can see how many subscribers each post attracted! So if you’ve been using one of these services, you can just go look at your own stream and see when they’ve scheduled social media posts. Step #3: Load the posts and the times into the automation tool. These posts are going to be shared many times, so make them good. This can add a lot of visual prominence within a social stream! 

That’s probably why posts with images are 35 percent more likely to be shared. Since I set up this process a few weeks ago, I save 15 – 20 minutes per day picking out content, writing posts, choosing images and scheduling shares. If these automated social posts are the only thing in your stream, that’s not good.
