    Q: Howto upload files to Box using Limagito File Mover
    A: Version v2020.2.14.0 is the first version with BOX as Destination. This allows us to use Limagito File Mover to upload your files to BOX.

    At this moment we support 2 authentication types:

    • Server Authentication with Client Credentials
    • Server Authentication with JWT

    After selecting the type, please switch to the OAuth2 setup.

    A. In case you are going to use ‘Server Authentication with Client Credentials’:

    • Prerequisites

      • A Custom Application using Client Credentials Grant authentication within the Box Developer Consol
      • Limagito File Mover BOX Create New App
      • Limagito File Mover Select Custom App
      • Limagito File Mover BOX Client Credentials Grant
      • 2FA enabled on your Box account in order to view/copy your client secret from the configuration tab
      • Limagito File Mover BOX 2-step verification
      • Ensure your application is authorized within the Box Admin Console
      • Limagito File Mover BOX Custom Apps Authorization

    So finally we can start:

    • Add ClientID and Client Secret
    • Add User or Enterprise ID

    If you are going to use your Enterprise ID then don’t forget to enable the checkbox ‘Use Enterprise ID’.

    B. In case you are going to use ‘Server Authentication with JWT ‘:

    Import the JSON Private Key file you generated using the BOX Dev Console.

    If you need any help with our ‘Howto upload files to Box’, please let us know.
    Please remember when you change the setup after it was already authorized:
    Make sure to re-authorize the application in the enterprise’s Administrator Console after making any changes to a Server Authentication app.

    Q&A 40: Is it possible to create a file timestamp monitor job

    Q: Is it possible to create a file timestamp monitor job. I mean, is there a way to setup a job that states that if there has not been a file with a timestamp of less than say 2 hours to send an alarm?

    A: Yes this is possible. We added some screenshots to get you started.

    • Be sure the Function is set to ‘Copy Files’ (which is default).

    Limagito File Mover Function Setup

    • Please add the directory you want to monitor as WIN Source. In our example we’ll use ‘C:\Test\In\’.

    Limagito File Mover Source Selection

    • We are going to monitor .pdf files in this example so we added  *.pdf  as Filename Include Filter.

    Limagito File Mover Filename Filter Setup

    • Our goal is to check if there are files available younger than 2 hours:

    • As Destination we added a simple Pascal Script to give us some information:

    Limagito File Mover Destination Selection

    Begin
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      psLogWrite(1, '', 'File Found: ' + psFilePath + psFileName);
    End.

    Limagito File Mover Pascal Script

    • Next step is to setup the ‘On No File Found’ Rule Event:
      • Enable ‘On No File Found’ Rule Event
      • Enable Mail
      • Setup Mail Message
      • Setup Common SMTP (Server which will send the Mail Message)

    Limagito File Mover Rule Events

      • Mail Message Setup

    Limagito File Mover Email Setup

      • Setup Common SMTP (Server which will send the Mail Message). We are using the Google SMTP to send the Mail Message.

    Limagito File Mover SMTP Server Setup

    • We added a Pascal Script which will add information in the log when the event is triggered.
    Begin
      // ... add your code here
      psLogWrite(1, '', 'We did not find any file younger than 2 hours');
    End.

    Limagito File Mover Rule event Pascal Script

    • If you don’t want to send the email event ‘On No File Found’ with each scan then please enable ‘Error event Memory’ in the Options Tab. When this option is enable AND ‘No File Was Found’ then we’ll send the email only once. The ‘Error Event Memory’ will reset itself when a file was found again.

    • RunTime Log Result when no file younger than 2 hours was found:

    Q&A 39: Is it possible to setup a wildcard config for source directories?

    Q: I was curious if it is possible to setup a wildcard config for source directories.  In this example, folders with media are created every January 1st.  I like the source path to be something like \\MyServer\MyShare\media\202*  , essentially only looking for folders with a year of 2020 or greater.

    A: Yes this is possible. Could you please try:

    – Setup WIN as Source folder. Directory: \\MyServer\MyShare\media\
    Limagito File Mover WIN as Source
    (ignore the red text, it’s just an example)
    Limagito File Mover WIN as Source Setup
    – Add the following Directory Filter Setup:
    We’ll exclude files in the base folder (\\MyServer\MyShare\media\)
    Limagito File Mover Directory Filter Setup
    We added a Subdirectory Include Name Filter:

    Important, we’ll also exclude subfolders of invalid Subdirectories.

    Feedback user: Thank you. This seems to work.
