Automation Workshop includes List files Action, that retrieves the contents of the specified folder. The list can contain files, folders or both. When retrieved the list is stored into the dynamic value (variable) which can be used as a parameter in other Actions.
Note that some Actions accept only files or folders as their input. Configure the List files Action appropriately to couple it with the Action which will use the list created.
|Files||Specify the folder which contents will be listed as well as file / folder names to be included in the list.|
|Sort||Choose multiple level list sorting options as well as the list size and skipping of list entries.|
|Size||Specify the minimum and maximum size of files to be included in the list.|
|Filter||Choose whether to exclude files and folders based on their name or creation, modification dates.|
|Attributes||Include and exclude files and folder depending on their attributes.|
|Advanced||Specify list entry separator and choose whether to add custom text before and after each file and folder name.|
|Options||Choose whether to list files, folders or both. Select list entry format. Specify whether to list only the selected folder or also its subfolders.|
|Errors||Choose errors that lead to On Error behavior.|
|On Error||Configure operations to be performed when List files Action encounters an error. Available operations include retrying the Action, sending email report, running another task and continuing with next Action or stopping the Task.|
