Reading File from a Desktop/ShareFolder in SAP MII 14.0


Dear Experts,

I have a situation where I want to read a CSV file from a source different than SAP MII server. Basic intention is to read a file from a desktop or some shared folder.

My first doubt is- Is it really possible in SAP MII 14.0 version?

But still I tried doing the same. Used Get File Text Loader action and text loader and provided file path from desktop which gives me an error. Here's the syntax I tried with mask as .csv:

  • C://Users/XXX/Desktop
  • C:\Users\XXX\Desktop
  • C:/Users/XXX/Desktop

Error I get is as follows:

  • [ERROR] [Get_File_List_0]GetFileList: Access to the file path /C://Users/XXX/Desktop is not allowed

Please advise, if it is really possible in MII 14.0 . If yes, Am I missing any steps?
