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.
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.
Setup Source and Scan Timers as you normally do and add the following Pascal Script as Destination:
Begin psExitCode:= 1; // ... add your code here psLogWrite(1, '', psFilePath + psFileName); End.
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.
