Documentation

Note: This method uses the agent native file copy protocol, and can only download files from the policy server. To download a file from an external source, you can use HTTP with the file_download method.

This method requires that the policy server is configured to accept copy of the source file from the agents it will be applied to.

You can download a file from the shared files with:
