Upload one or more files or folders to a remote server. Supported server types are FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, and DigitalOcean Spaces. The connection to server has to be established before uploading files and folders.
|Use filename or mask to upload files and folders to a remote server. File mask
*.* designates all files and folders in the specified folder · Learn file masks and wildcards
To upload multiple files and multiple file types, even if located on different drives (local and network), use
| vertical bar character to create a list of different filenames. Combine variables (lists or simple vars), wildcards, absolute, relative, or current path. For example:
|If Upload to parameter ends with slash character
/, it refers to folder where files will be uploaded; if it ends without slash character, it refers to the file name to which uploaded files will be renamed.
If file mask or wildcards are used, all uploaded files can be renamed. For example, to match all text files and rename them during upload to comma-separated value files, use
*.txt mask for Local file parameter and
*.csv file mask for Upload to parameter (along with folder path).
|Delete local file after successful upload
|When the files are successfully uploaded to a remote directory, they will be removed from the local machine.
|Select an existing connection to use for file uploading. If there are no defined connections, the new connection window will be opened to establish a connection to FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, or DigitalOcean Spaces server.
|Use Browse to select a particular file or folder on local disk, network share on LAN (local area network), etc.
|Use dynamic data input—substitute a parameter from a file, web, connected Trigger, other Actions, date and time presets, etc.
- Upload File Action includes subdirectories that match the wildcard mask. It also deletes matching subdirectories, if Delete option is selected.
- If file mask matches 0 files, then no files are transferred. Completion status is considered successful in such cases.
- Existing remote files with the same name are automatically overwritten.
- If destination directory does exist, it may or may not be created automatically, depending on connection protocol and server software.
- Filenames with characters that are not valid in Windows file systems are automatically encoded using
