Q&A 7: Can we test a rule before it actually runs in LimagitoX File Mover

Q: Is it possible to test a rule before it actually runs? To make sure filename, pattern match works and destination is accessible?
A: Let us explain you how we mostly test a rule. We have two methods.

First method:

Disable the Scan Timers in the schedule setup:


Set the ‘Max. Files processed in One Scan’ to 1 during tests:

This way only a single file is processed when you start the rule manually.


Second method:

Setup Source and Scan Timers as you normally do and add the following Pascal Script as Destination:

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


Be sure to set function to ‘Copy’ because we don’t want to delete any files from the Source:


Open Logging Setup of this moving rule:


Enable history logging to save the received information from the Pascal Script in a log file. Let the rule run and check the content of this log file.


If you need help, please let us know.
