SFTP Duplicate File

Hi SDNites,

I wanted to put a check on duplicate files being processed while using SFTP adapter. I have used the checkbox Duplicate file checking but have few queries,

1. If I process and archive the file in first instance and the file with the same name again, should Duplicate file checking should work.

2. If I process and do not archive the file in first instance then I will keep on getting the error untill someone manually deletes the file. So is it mandatorily required to use ATP in these scenarios (But errors cannot still be avoided).

3. Duplicate error is found at Adapter level and not at the message monitor level. Can I get it at the message monitor level or is there any other centralised monitoring approach.

Regards,

Abhi

    Hello Abhishek

    1. If I process and archive the file in first instance and the file with the same name again, should Duplicate file checking should work.

    It wont work as the file with same name has been processed already.

    2. If I process and do not archive the file in first instance then I will keep on getting the error untill someone manually deletes the file. So is it mandatorily required to use ATP in these scenarios (But errors cannot still be avoided).

    You can try using Thershold option.

    3. Duplicate error is found at Adapter level and not at the message monitor level. Can I get it at the message monitor level or is there any other centralised monitoring approach

    By using thershold option you can stop the channel and trigger an alert

    Hi Raghu,

    As mentioned by you that file has been archived after processing is fine. The overall objective of Duplicate File check is if the same file has been processed earlier, it should not be processed again (I expect that once file is processed, its details should be stored somewhere internally by adapter engine). But in my case it is being processed again and again despite the fact that I have same file name and parameter duplicate file check selected.

    Regards,

    Abhi
