tWaitforFile triggers the folder set in its "directory to scan" . How can i use it with tFtpGet so that when a file is created in a folder which is stored on ftp server, the further process is triggered in my job. my job design is as follows. what path should i set in "directory to scan" .
As soon as the directory you want to scan is on your ftp server, I'm afraid you have to build an infinite loop (with wait time for each iteration) to scan directory content using a tFTPFileList or tFTPFileExist component.
You need to build the loop by yourself using tLoop and tSleep component.
The tFTPFileList must be part of the component after tLoop.
