A Sterling Connect:Direct Integrated File Agent rule includes one or more match criteria and operators that specify how Sterling Connect:Direct Integrated File Agent evaluates a compare value against a detected file. The Process specified for a rule is submitted to the Sterling Control Center server only when the evaluation results in a match.
Operators define how Sterling Connect:Direct Integrated File Agent tests for the match criteria using the compare value to evaluate properties of a detected file. Operators like Matches or Does not match do support the wildcard characters asterisk (*) and question mark (*?) in the compare string. The following table describes the different types of Match Criteria that can be added to a Rule.
|Watch Directory||Select one or more entries from the list of Watch Directories defined in the configuration. The detected file must be in one of these directories.|
|File Name||Select a compare operator (Matches, Does not match or Contains) and specify a string value. Wildcards (*) are supported. The fully qualified path of the detected file will be compared against the specified value.|
|File Size||Select a compare operator (Greater than, Less than or Equals) and specify a numeric value. The size of the detected file will be compared against the specified value.|
