File Watcher

Overview

File Watcher is an activity that watches a directory for specific file events like create, delete, exist, update, and rename, allowing the developer to trigger workflow processing based on these events.

How it works

The activity will wait for one of the specified file events to occur and when that happens it will return the event type and file name that triggered the event. After the event is triggered the activity can be configured to wait for the changes to stabilize and the file to be released by the originating process.

This is a one-time activity - meaning that the file watcher will finish monitoring after the first event that matches the required criteria happens.
