  • 1.  RA FTP using Sub Vars

    Posted 06-28-2018 03:37 PM

    Testing RA FTP v4.0.3 on Applications Manager v9.2.1.  Can you use Sub Vars to 'Make a Directory'?  The documentation doesn't seem real clear this.  Also, is there anyone using this in Production that doesn't mind me asking some additional questions, if needed.  Thanks.

    There should be no issues with using a subvar in a Make a Directory prompt value. If you are unfamiliar with RA FTP, it is best to play around with it by creating a test RA FTP Job and seeing what you can or can't do with it.

     

    I was able to successfully create a remote directory using the following values:

     

    Subvar is #folder=directory

    Make Directory value is /home/qa4/user_tests/phm/test/{#folder}

     

    The Job runs successfully and checking the remote server, the following directory exist:

    /home/qa4/user_tests/phm/test/directory

     

    One thing you note is that you can not make a directory in a directory that does not yet exist.

    For example, you can not make the the following directory:

    /home/qa4/user_tests/phm/test/directory/directory2

     

    if the following does not yet exist:

    /home/qa4/user_tests/phm/test/directory

     

    In short, you can only create one directory with one Make Directory command .
