    Hi,

    Why not schedule the transmission of the file that needs to be processed to be at 7 pm ?

    Then set the poll interval on the channel to poll hourly for example. Most of the time it will not find a file but it will when it has been transmitted from the legacy system.

    Kind regards

    Colin. 😊

    Hi Suneel,

    Unfortunally it is not possible to schedule any adapters.

    You can only schedule messages in queues using the scheduling functionalty of XI.

    What you can do is create a file adapter that polls every 10 min. for files. And create a schedule filter for the messages. You can set the time for the schedule at 7 P.M.

    The option to use the poll interval of the file adapter is not a good idea. You could set the poll interval to 24 hours, but the adapter could be restarted at another time than 7pm. Then your schedule will be incorrect.

    Hope this answers your question,
