The following simplified pipeline creates two steps bound to the same
affinityGroup called "together":
ag_step_1 creates a text file in the build node where it executes. The subsequent step,
ag_step_2 tries to read the file.
ag_step_2 into the same affinity group, the file that is created in the build node's file system by
ag_step_1 will be available to
ag_step_2 because it is guaranteed to be running in the same node. Without being bound to an affinity group,
ag_step_2 may fail because it might execute in a node where the file doesn't exist.
When this pipeline is loaded in the JFrog Platform, the interactive diagram shown in the Pipeline History indicates that these steps are bound into the same affinity group:
When the pipeline is run, the Pipeline Run Logs show that
ag_step_2 was able to successfully find the file in the node's filesystem that was created by
