Copy File Node

The Copy File Node is used to copy local files on the system. Files can also be renamed during the copy process if needed. 


General Settings

Source File - the full path to the file to be copied

Target Directory - the full path of the directory the file will be copied to

    Note: This directory is local to where the server is running not the PAS Manager and so the file path must follow the format set by the operating system of the server.

Rename File - Check this option if you wish to rename the file after it is copied

Create Parent Directories: When checked, if the target path does not exist then it will be created. Otherwise an error will be thrown.

File Name - New file name to use when the "Rename File" option is selected. 




Write Mode: Determines whether a create new file or append to an existing file such as updating a .csv record.

Name Collision Logic: When a prepared output file has the same name as an existing file the existing file could be overwritten. You may choose to have an unused name created by appending a numeric or alphabetic counter to the end of the file name. Be careful when using the overwrite option.
