File Agent Rule Definition Panel: Capability to use the same arguments in the "process name" field as in "process arguments"
We would like to create a very dynamic approach for the definition of file agent rules using the "monitor subdirecctory feature" and a model for subdirectory structures containing the cdp process file name.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
Our file system has the structure
These could be real directories or symbolic links to application data locations.
The rule defines to traverse from .../out including all sub-directories.
In the "process arguments" a lot of arguments can be used. One defines a reference to "FileTransferID" section of the path.
If the same arguments could be used in "process name" the name of the cdp process file will be indirectly defined by the sub-directory structure.
As a consequence the File Agent rule definition does not need to be touched if a new directory is introduced or removed.
This follows a clear segregation of duties:
- definition of directory structures and applying correct permissions and symbolic links: System Admins
- definition of cdp files and FA rules: Connect:Direct expert
In the consequence the rare resources of CD Experts can be protected.
