Insert Files into the File System

The connector's insert fetch action can insert files into the file system. To use the insert action, you must construct some XML that specifies where to add each file, and the information to insert.

To insert a file, set the reference to the path where you want to insert the file. Use the file element to specify the content to insert. There are several ways that you can do this, for example specifying the path to a file or providing the content base-64 encoded. For more information about how to specify the source file, refer to the File System Connector Reference.

The following example would insert a file at the location C:\files\file.txt. The file would contain the content "This is my file".

<insertXML>
  <insert>
    <reference>C:\files\file.txt</reference>
    <file>
      <type>content</type>
      <content>VGhpcyBpcyBteSBmaWxl</content>
    </file>
    <insert_id>012345</insert_id>
  </insert>
</insertXML>

Add this XML to the insert fetch action as the value of the insertXML action parameter. The XML must be URL encoded before being used in the action command. For example:

http://host:port/action=Fetch&FetchAction=Insert
                             &ConfigSection=MyTask
                             &InsertXML=[URL encoded XML]

For more information about using the insert fetch action, refer to the File System Connector Reference.
