File Trigger Suggestions

Question asked by sdlancaster on Jan 28, 2018

We have the need to monitor files on a Windows server that will use a wildcard as the names could be a bit different but all are delivered in the same folder and there could be hundreds of them throughout the day. Looking for a good way to handle this by passing the filename to let's say 3 different connect direct jobs in a round robin fashion so you would have a file trigger on file 1 passing the filename to Job1, file 2 goes to Job2, file 3 goes to Job3, file 4 goes back to Job1, etc.

 

Another option that may work for this requirement is to have the file trigger job keep kicking off the same connect direct job continuously and passing the filename where multiples of the same job can run.

 

Looking for suggestions.

 

Thank you.

Sharon
