The Remote file information Action retrieves information on a file in a remote directory.

After the Remote file information Action is completed, the information on its operations is temporarily stored in dynamic variables that can be retrieved by any other Action within the same Task via Variable Wizard. For example, these variables can be saved as text by Write to File Action, emailed to admin by Send Email Action or used as dynamic parameters in other Actions.

Owner Available only for SFTP connections. Returns owner and group numberic notation.
