Pinned topic Create FTP Directory

‏2013-09-09T14:57:11Z |

Is it possible to create an FTP Directory in Cast Iron, im pretty sure the answer is no, as the only activities we get to play with are:

  • Poll Directory
  • Put File
  • Get File
  • Delete File
  • List Files
  • Rename File

There is nothing that even hints at creating a directory, just wondering if anyone had figured out a way to do this?

    As per my knowledge, I think we can't create directories in FTP using Studio.

    We have couple of Projects where Directories are created every day using some batch jobs... but i'm not sure how to do so.

    Are you running a shell script before you trigger the orchestration, or are you doing in the Cast Iron orchestration?

    You can write a custom web service that does the directory creation and call that from Cast Iron.  Just a few lines of code in .NET to implement this service.

    I have other methods to create the FTP directories i just wanted to know if there was anything native to Cast Iron. I guess that is not the case. Thank you for you replies they have been helpful.
