Automation Workshop FTP Watcher monitors for changes in files and directories on a remote FTP server. When changes are detected, the Trigger returns various data that can be used as parameters in the following Actions.
|Preset||Choose the type of information to return on monitored file or directory:|
|Example||Shows what kind of information will be returned.|
|Adjust()||Streamline creation of Task workflows even further—instantly make quick variable adjustments such as in-place replacement (all, first, or last occurrence), trimming (whitespaces, quotes, etc.), or changing capitalization. Optionally, set a different display name.|
Let's assume that FTP Watcher is set to monitor the
/home/user/example/uploads folder, and activated by the
/home/user/example/uploads/invoices/Inv-0073232.pdf file. The returned variable values of each preset are listed below…
Full path and filename
|Full path and filename|
The Filename preset retrieves the file name without path.
Absolute path returns the full path of monitored folder.
Relative path returns the path of a folder relative to the monitored folder.
Watched directory returns the full path of directory monitored by FTP Watcher.
