The JS7 offers File Watching out-of-the-box.

  • JS7 Agents can be used to watch for incoming files from specific directories.
  • For each incoming file a file order is created that is passed to the related workflow.
  • Users are in charge of (re)moving files from the incoming directories.

File and Directory Watching

There is a fundamental difference between both concepts:

  • File Watching is about watching for incoming files from a directory.
    • The JS7 will create a file order for each incoming file.
    • File Watching is performed by JS7 Agents per directory, for details see JS7 - File Watching.
  • Directory Watching is about watching for changes to a directory.
