serveradmin settings pcast:shared_filesystemWithin the Shared folder you will see Content and within Content you will see a directory for each day that an episode was created. Within the day folders you will see a long string (which is the generated ID of the episode) followed by a prb file extension. I call the prb a podcast resource bundle, although I’m not sure that’s official. Inside that bundle are all of the assets for the episode that the bundle represents, including property lists used to associate the corresponding podcast episode with various sorts of metadata and membership. Removing the bundle for each episode alone does not remove it from the list in a feed. Therefore, to avoid broken links for episodes, you will then need to run
pcastconfig –sync_libraryBut if you leave the feed in place you can still see the feed itself, and even if you remove a workflow you will still see its corresponding feed listed in the Workflow Feeds, which can be pretty confusing. Feeds are defined in a pwf bundle, which I call a Podcast Workflow bundle. These can be found in the Server directory of your shared file system, within the Workflows directory. Here, you will see a number of long strings (the trend continues as these are the generated ID of the workflows) followed by the pwf extension indicating they are bundles. These will correspond to the output of the following serveradmin command to show you which workflow is associated with which ID.
serveradmin settings pcast:workflows:_array_id:*:nameOr for a more robust albeit less human readable output, you can look at using the podcast command (a front end for many common Podcast Producer tasks) along with the –listfeeds option:
podcast –listfeedsThe feeds should not be removed directly from the file system. Instead, remove them using the –removefeed option, available with the podcast command. The following would remove a feed with an ID of AAAAAAAA-BBBB-CCCC-DDDD-EEEEEEEEEEEE:
podcast –removefeed –feed_uuid AAAAAAAA-BBBB-CCCC-DDDD-EEEEEEEEEEEEStill working on a way to get all assets in a feed/workflow to tar or rm. I’m trying to use a curl against the atom feed at feed://SERVERNAME:8171/podcastproducer/atom_feeds/$FEEDGUID, where the $FEEDGUID is the output from –listfeeds.
