To Ascii file pass issue

Hi Team,

Please advise on the below issue.

I am actually loading the details through SQL query in the source tab

into a notepad/CSV through TO ASCII pass, how even I am getting the message as File not Found/Init Failed. I tried changing the forward and backward slash, changed the location (full permissions). Also I have observed that the spelling of Destination also incorrect. May I know where I can check this warning ?

Please advise if I miss any step.

    Hi Aravind,

    please keep in mind that the job is executed on the machine running the dispatcher service. This can be a different one from the machine you run the Developer Studio on. The file specified is to be found on the dispatcher instance.

    You could start using a relative file location e.g. ./mytest1234.txt and search for this file on the dispatcher machine.

    Regards,

    Alex

    Hello Aravind,

    To ASCII pass generate the file in the Runtime server. It seems that File path entered in the To ASCII pass doesn't exist in the Run time server. To validate it, first find out the dispatcher configured for this Job and then check the corresponding runtime engine.

    In case, File path doesn't exist in the Runtime server, re-enter the valid file path in the destination of the To ASCII pass.

    Regarding "Also I have observed that the spelling of Destination also incorrect" - Can you highlight which SAP IDM Version (along with SP) you are using, It seems typo in that SP level and can be ignored.

    Hi Aravind,

    First check the path relative to which the runtime engine is found.

    Second question, what is the OS where IDM is running?

    For Windows you have to set the backslash in your directory format and a second backslash character used to escape characters.

    C:\\usr\\sap\\<SAPSID>\\<IDM<Instance_Number>\\Identity_Center\\myCustomFolder\\myCustomFile.csv

    For Linux it looks like:

    C:/usr/sap/<SAPSID>/<IDM<Instance_Number>/Identity_Center/myCustomFolder/myCustomFile.csv
