    Hi Pavan,

         Could you please elaborate what kind of adapter you are using in receiver side?

    Does the adapter offer OS command facility?

    • Hi Anupam,

      Thnaks for the response, I got my issue resolved. I used below UDF to Achieve my requirement.

      try {

      String filename    = "";

      DynamicConfiguration conf1 = (DynamicConfiguration) container



      DynamicConfigurationKey key1 = DynamicConfigurationKey.create( "http:/"+"/","FileName");

      filename = conf1.get(key1);

      filename = filename.replaceAll( ".txt","");

      filename = filename+".txt.pgp";


      return filename;


      catch(Exception e)


           String exception = e.toString();

            return exception;

    hi Pavan,

    you can create a file-to file scenario with no mapping and use OS command on receiver file channel.

    For changing name - a small OS command "rename %f %f.pgp" on windows

    "mv %f %f.pgp" on Unix should work. I don't think any additional configuration is required.
