    Trigger a Rule with no Source Files available in Limagito File Mover

    In version v2020.12.6.0 we added ‘Pascal Script’ as Source. This makes it easier for us to add customer specific requests. A while ago we recieved a request if it was possible to trigger a Rule without having actually source files.

    • Select PScript (Pascal Script) as Source:

    Limagito File Mover Pascal Script as Source

    • Add the following Pascal Script (Copy / Paste):
    Begin
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      psAddToSourceFiles(psCreateDummyTxtFile(psRuleTempPath));
    End.

    Limagito Filemover Pascal Script trigger Rule

    This is all what is need to trigger a Rule without the need for actual Source Files.

     

    If you need any help with this ‘Trigger a Rule’ feature, please let us know.

    Trigger an email alert when files build up in a folder

    Dear Users,

    We got the following request from a user: ‘Trigger an email alert when files build up in a folder’. Although this isn’t the goal of our file transfer tool we decided to give it a try.

    What we did to achieve this:

    1) Add the Windows Source folder you want to check

    2) Add the following ‘On Rule Begin’ Pascal Script. This script will reset the file counter when the rule is triggered.

    Begin
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // Reset File Counter
      psResetCounter;
    End.


    3) Enable ‘Copy Files’ and ‘Preference Order’ in the Function Setup.

    4) Add two destinations. Important, the first destination must be ‘Pascal Script’. The second destination is ‘SMTP’ (email).

    5) Destination Pascal Script. Please adjust the ctMaxFiles constant value that will be used to trigger the email. At the moment this is set to 10 files.

    Const
      ctMaxFiles = 10;
    Begin
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      If psCounter = ctMaxFiles then
      Begin
        psLogWrite(1, '', 'Max Files Reached, Counter Value: ' + IntToStr(psCounter));
        psExitCode := 0;
      End;
    End.

    6) Setup the Destination SMTP options. These will be used when sending the email.

    7) The result. Single email event when files build up in a folder.

    If you need any help, do not hesitate to ask. We are here to help.
