To force immediate checking for new versions of a resource, rather than waiting for the periodic checking, run:
$ fly -t example check-resource --resource my-pipeline/my-resource
To check from a particular version, including the given version, append the
--from flag like so:
$ fly -t example check-resource --resource my-pipeline/my-resource \ --from ref:abcdef
This can be useful for collecting versions that are older than the current ones, given that a newly configured resource will only start from the latest version.
ref: prefix is resource-dependent. For example, the bosh-io-release resource might use
version:11.2 in place of
To pause the periodic checking of a resource, run:
$ fly -t example pause-resource --resource my-pipeline/my-resource
This will stop the resource from detecting new versions.
