    J_NeSmith, please assist me with the scenario i am trying to accomplish.

    Hi Team,


    If you can suggest, how to read the file completely and save it as  a single property.


    I am trying it in the below way:

    1. Locate the file and read it each line.

             Suppose I have a file with values as A, B, C, D, E..... all in each line.

    2. After reading save, copy and save it to a single property.

             Ex. {{Response}} -- A, B, C, D, E..... all in each line.


    Any kind of suggestions is highly appreciated.

    Is the file in a location that you can map a drive?

    If so, you could try the Read File step.

     In this step, configure the file name/location and save the input into a property:

    Use another step to do something with the file.


    - The file path must be accessible from the machine (local or DT server) that is executing the step.

    - The file path can be parameterized using {{ }} notation if desired.

    - File size may or may not be an issue.  For example, if you are moving '000s of MB, I cannot say what the performance would be.

    - There is also a DT FTP step available. I am unfamiliar with Tectia FTP, but I assume you have a technique for passing the file (property) to the FTP client.


    There is a custom SSH/FTP step that you can search for in Communities. I do not know the status of this code.


    Let us know if this helps.
