Getting LogMon to monitor log file with changing Folder Name

Question asked by Hayes on Jan 12, 2018

I need to monitor a file with Logmon.  The file directory changes for every instance.  The file being monitored in in Jenkins Software.  The directory structure is as follows

 

c:\Software\Jenkins\home\Jobs\Project Name\builds\buildnumber\log

 

Examples:

c:\Software\Jenkins\home\Jobs\MyProject\builds\1341\log

c:\Software\Jenkins\home\Jobs\MyProject\builds\1342\log

c:\Software\Jenkins\home\Jobs\MyProject\builds\1343\log

 

For each build run, a new Build folder is created.

 

How can I get the logmon monitor to view the next build number log file after the build is successful.

 

There is a file called nextBuildNumber in the following folder

c:\Software\Jenkins\home\Jobs\MyProject\nextBuildNumber -  This will tell us what the next build number is. 

Is there a way to get the logmon or another probe to change the file path, after it detects the NextBuildNumber?
