APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When Listening producer over FTP(S) configured for Passive
    connection type, the FTP Client Get Service in
    FileGatewayListeningProducerFTP workflow still uses Active
    mode.
    

Local fix

  • Added following assign statement to FTPClentGet service in
    FileGatewayListeningProducerFTP bpml so that service reads
    connection type fro ProcessData. And marked new version of bpml
    as default.
    
    <assign to="ConnectionType" from="ConnectionType/text()" />
    Updated service looks like below.
    
                         <operation name="FTP Get File">
                                     <participant
    name="FTPClientGet" />
                             <output message="GetRequest">
                                         <assign to="."
    from="*"></assign>
                                 <assign to="SessionToken"
    from="/ProcessData/FTPSession/SessionToken/text()"></assign>
                                 <assign to="RemoteFileName"
    from="FTPListResult/ListNames[1]/Name/text()" />
                                 <assign to="ConnectionType"
    from="ConnectionType/text()" />
                                 <assign
    to="DelayWaitingOnIO">60</assign>
                             </output>
                                    <input message="inmsg">
                                                <assign to="."
    from="*"></assign>
                             </input>
                                 </operation>
