Customer requirement
A Windows application is constantly creating output files. The total amount (may differ) and the names have (partly) the same namespace. The namespace identifies the "set of files" as a unique customer sequence.

Examples of the filenames:
VC_180223_092213_customersessionid_2_6572151.mp4
VC_180223_092213_customersessionid_2_6572151-NewIdCardDE_Back.png
VC_180223_092213_customersessionid_2_6572151-NewIdCardDE_Covering.png
VC_180223_092213_customersessionid_2_6572151-SessionHistory.xml

The string above "180223_092213_customersessionid_2_6572151" (part of the filename) is unique any may be used to identify all files with that string.

Automic should identify all files with the given namespace, wait for the files to be stable (e.g. 3 minutes) and then tranfers those files with File Transfer to a target while deleting on the source location. The files in the target then should be processed with a batch program.

Question
How can Automic manage to identify all files "of a set" to transfer them into the target?

Any help would be great! Thanks in advance.
