Usage examples

  • Upload and update files on a remote server in real-time when any such changes occur in local system, using the File & Folder Watcher Trigger together with the Upload File Action, thus achieving the real-time synchronization with the remote server, as opposite to the Synchronize Directories Action, that is using polling and scheduling algorithm.
  • Use Upload File Action together with Loop Actions and the Variable Wizard to automagically deploy files to thousands of servers. Used together with the Start Task Action and parallel task running capabilities of Automation Workshop, it is possible to upload files to hundreds of servers simultaneously.
  • Archive and compress files with the Zip Files Action, and store the backup securely in the private Cloud or remote FTP server automatically—no single line of code is required.
  • Auto upload large files to remote server and send email upon successful or failed uploads.
