Trigger flow On New Or Updated File


File connector provides a listener that polls a directory for files that have been created/updated. A message is generated for each file that is found. Let’s see how we trigger flow on new/updated file.

Create project in Anypoint studio

Drag and drop on New or Updated File from mule palette

Configure the below parameters:

  • Directory: provide the directory path
  • Matcher: Use a matcher to filter the files
  • Watermark: Use the watermark parameter to only pick files that have been created or updated after the last poll was executed by default it is disabled
  • Schedule Frequency: configure the frequency to poll the directory

Once the file is processed you can configure below parameters

  • Auto Delete: file delete after processing default is false
  • Move to directory: configure the directory for processed file
  • Rename: rename file after processing
