This is node type that describes the file to transfer.
resource_config- a dictionary that represent the file resource.
cloudify.datatypes.File structure (from plugin.yaml):
cloudify.datatypes.File: properties: resource_path: type: string description: > The path relative to the blueprint where the file is stored. Currently this must be packaged in the blueprint. An external URI is not valid. required: true file_path: type: string description: > The path on the machine where the file should be saved. required: true owner: type: string description: > The owner string, such as "centos:wheel" required: true mode: type: integer description: > The file permissions, such as 777.

Blueprint Node Template:
docker_yum_repo: type: cloudify.nodes.File properties: resource_config: resource_path: resources/docker.repo file_path: /etc/yum.repos.d/docker.repo owner: root:root mode: 644
For file transfer to a remote host defined in the blueprint, use
cloudify.relationships.contained_in relationship (see openstack-blueprint.yaml example).
Content of resources/docker.repo:
[dockerrepo] name=Docker Repository baseurl=https://yum.dockerproject.org/repo/main/centos/7/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=https://yum.dockerproject.org/gpg
