readme  Upload blobs with 'bosh upload blobs'

$ git add .; git commit -m "Add postgres job"

$ bosh upload blobs
$ git add .; git commit -m "Uploaded blobs"
$ bosh create release
$ bosh upload release

You can also quickly create an initial deployment manifest for a release, deploy and thus trigger the package compilation:

$ bosh status
# get the bosh UUID
$ bosh-gen manifest example-dev . UUID -d 8196
$ bosh deployment example-dev.yml
$ bosh deploy

The packages will compile but the job will fail. You need to populate some properties into your manifest. Replace properties: {} with the following:

  db: :mydb
    address: localhost
    port: 5432
    - name: vcap
    - name: myfirstdb
      run_on_every_startup: []
