Save to File Node

The Save to File node exports the current message payload to a designated local folder on the server.


General Settings

Destination Folder: the full path to a local directory (on the server) to watch for files.

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.

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: Set the name of the file when writing out the message payload.

Note: At RUNTIME if PAS attempts to write out a file or create a directory it checks to make sure it does not contain any invalid characters (i.e. |?:* etc...). If it does all invalid characters will be replaced with an underscore "_"


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.
