File selection sequence in the FTP connection for File Sender Adapter


I have a file to Proxy scenario using FTP connection parameters.

If there are multiple files in the sender folder, XI picks up the files randomly with no processing sequence.

I want XI to pick up the files based on the date time stamp meaning the oldest file created in the folder should be processes first and rest all in sequence there after.

I know processing sequence can be set for NFS connection but not for FTP .

Please suggest if there's any way to make this work.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks and Regards,

Amit Bhagwat.

    File Selection Sequencing may not be possible using FTP...however File Processing Sequencing is possible by using EOIO mode, Maintain Order at Runtime option in ID, using BPM.

    For the Transport Protocol "File Transfer Protocol (FTP)" files are always processed in ascending alphabetical order

    If you want the file to be processed in sequence then you can use Quality of Service EOIO in the sender adapter.

    The files are processed in the sequence they are picked up.

    otherwise use BPM for File Sequencing..
