Pinned topic launcher Input file names

‏2013-10-27T15:19:41Z |

Hi All

I created launcher to pick 2 input files.I gave names  for 2 inputs as

1st input file: *HIPAA.txt(for 1st input file).

2nd input file: *HIPAAS.txt(for 2nd input file)

I gave * before file names to pick any files.But it looking for exact same file names.It is looking for *HIPAA.txt(for 1st file),*HIPAAS.txt(for 2nd file).

How to give file names ?Launcher needs to pick files with any names.I gave wait time 5 minutes in .msl file.

    On which file you enable source event ON? Genarally it should pick up files as per input files. Restarting of launcher sometimes works.

    Hi Vijji

    Thanks for your reply

    There is no source event turned ON for any file.Launcher is  picking the files if the  file names are Exact same as below.

    1st input file: *HIPAA.txt.

    2nd input file: *HIPAAS.txt

    In the place of   "*" if datetimestamp is there launcher is not picking the files.SO date and time will change for every file.So I am giving "*" for that.

    Thanks

    I understood meaning * here. if you are using .msl/launcher , map should be triggered based events ( file or timebased). Launcher looks for first file (if u enable source event ON) and map triggers  using first and second file as per their file naming.

     

    I may be wrong if you are using command server. Launcher server concept works like this as per my knowledge.

    Hi Vijji

    I am using launcher and turned ON source event for 2 input files(5min wait time).But It is not picking any files if the input file name is other than these.It is not understanding "*".

    1st input file: *HIPAA.txt.

    2nd input file: *HIPAAS.txt.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Andy,

    I guess, it could be below reasons. I had same kind of issue earlier  and after lot of trials i fixed it.

    * Enableing of ON source event for 2 input files is not good practice. only one card we have make as triggering point.

    * Need to check .msl files paths in map settings and re-deploy and restart of launcher sometimes work.

    * Some times Launcher works in a strange mode.

     

    Thanks

    The statement "Enableing of ON source event for 2 input files is not good practice. only one card we have make as triggering point." is not true.

     

    In your case it's not what you want, but in some other cases it could actually be what you need (if you need two files/messages to be processed together and the map triggered when they both have appeared, then you'll need this kind of setting. In this case the two * will match, and if input 1 is named "1HIPAA.TXT" then the map will trigger on this and "1HIPAAS.TXT")
