Split File Path

Automation Workshop includes the Split File Path Action that takes a path value and separates it into its component parts—a drive letter, folder sequence (path), and filename with or without extension. These parts of the path can then be retrieved by following Action via the Variable Wizard value.

Features & highlights

  • Split any path strings that are retrieved from the List Files Action, or a path observed by one of the File Watchers, or any custom string.
  • Retrieve any part of the file path as a token, such as drive, path, filename, or extension.
  • Split both local and network \\UNC path formats.
  • Split FTP & Cloud path formats with forward slash instead of backslash characters.


  • File · Provide a full path that will be separated.
  • Options · Set the Action state and custom display name, define automated error workarounds, and enable an option to log only critical errors.


  • Split File Path integration—Variables (manipulate data dynamically within a workflow) and Events (recorded entries that detail the activity within the system).
  • Effortlessly streamline your automation processes by visually connecting your workflow using Variable Wizard—a powerful tool to access all 1,000+ variables—system, network, Triggers, Actions, globals, web, and much more…
  • Moreover, not only utilize Split File Path variables, but also seamlessly integrate them with a diverse array of other file and folder variables from local disks, mapped drives, network shares, and remote servers—FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, and more…

Quick access

To streamline your workflow creation, you can locate the Split File Path Action throughout the entire Automation suite's search tools—including the knowledge base, menu, and Add Action feature—using the quick «SFP» shortcut.

Arbitrary tokens?

While the Split File Path Action allows you to access components of a hierarchical pathname (both Windows and Linux), the Split Text Action can subdivide an arbitrary list (such as custom strings, text files, or CSV files) into tokens · Automated list processing
