File Adapter 7.11 - set operating system command line dynamically

is there any way to set the "Operating System Command Line" in the file adapter as ASMA / dynamic attribute?
I need to set  a command line exec depending on some XSL mapping values.

>>>is there any way to set the "Operating System Command Line" in the file adapter as ASMA / dynamic attribute?
>>>I need to set a command line exec depending on some XSL mapping values.
think about this approach:
you put the XSL values into the filename after the real name of the file
in the batch script you use those values in order to execute a dynamic exe command
after processing you just change the name of the file in the script by removing the xsl values
simple ? I think so

  • Operating system command to zip the file

    Can anyone please give me the operating system command to create the zip file in reciever side.

    >>Can anyone please give me the operating system command to create the zip file in reciever side.
    Why OS commands and not the PayloadZipModule?
    If you need OS commands check this blog of Michal /people/michal.krawczyk2/blog/2007/02/08/xipi-command-line-sample-functions
    You can try this command too
    cmd /C "jar cMf \\<folderpath> \\<folderpath>*.*"

  • Unzip file using operating system command in file/ftp receiver adapter

    I'm wonderdering how to unzip a zip-file in the receiver file/ftp adapter. I know it is possible to do it using the 'Operating system command' feature, but somehow the command I use seems to be ignored! (I'm using SP14, unix).
    The command I entered is quite simple: unzip %F (also tried the %f, but i guess it doesn't really matter wich on I use).
    Is it possible that I'm unzipping to another directory than the one i expect? the unzip should be performed to/in the current directory, and assumingly current directory is the one stated in the 'Target Directory', right?
    Hope someone can clearify this issue for me.
    Best regards,

    Hi Daniel,
    It seems to me also, that the files are being unzipped to a different location than what you are expecting. The OS command might getting executed in some default location(i am trying to fnd that out)on the server and not in the target directory of the channel(It seems logical to me)....
    If you have time...pls try this out & see whether this would help...
    Have a shell script written with the following commands in them
    cd <path to target directory>
    unzip $1(filename from the channel)
    and in the OS command in the Channel give....
    <absolute path to the .sh file> %F

    In the scenario which we have, File name is DYNAMICALLY GENERATED by a UDF
    I want to call the file at run time after message processing via Command Line and execute some os commands.
    But since the file name is Dynamic....How will i call the file at run time in Command Line:
    SYNTAX: %f(FileName)
    How will i specify the file name in the above syntax as the file name is Dynamic and not constatnt.
    Please Advice.

    Dear All,
    Yes just now i got the answer from this thread[OS command line script - Need help;

    does the OS command get executed after the output file is placed in the Receiver folder/server or before its placed in the receiver folder?

  • Operating System Command After File Processing in Sender File Adapter

    Hello guys,
    actually we have different interfaces, and the client to take all the files from only one directory, for example D:/DPI.
    Unitl now we had one adapter for every file with the content conversion, so we didn't have problems with that. Now we have the problem that we sould maintain an order processing files.
    We thougth that an idea could be to execute one file pointing to D:/DPI and at the Operating System Command put like: copy D:/DPI/file.txt D:/DPI/outbound/file.txt, so when file is executed, we move the next file to another directory where is pointing the adapter. Doing this we have an error on the adapter giving us the message: Could not process due to error: java.lang.NullPointerException
    We are using a Windows.
    There is anyway to do in our way, or there is a better solution to resolve this problem?
    Any other idea to do this?
    Many thanks in advance.

    Helo Guys,
    maybe I haven't explained well.
    We have one directory with different files. We have one adapter for every file( we need for the content conversion ) using NFS and all the adapters are pointing to the same directory.
    The problem is that if we have files A.txt, B.txt and C.txt we need to process in an order.
    And the problem we see is that for every file we have one adapter, so for example if we process file A.txt with one adapter, when this part is finished, we want to process file B.txt with another adapter, and the same for the rest of the files.
    So the idea we had is to create another directories, and when A.txt has finished move file B.txt to another directory.
    However this way is not running, if we log on the PI machine and execute cmd, we can do a copy of one file from one directory to another, but when we put this sentence in the adapter in OS command if we see the adapter log we see an error executing the OS command, but we don't know what is the error, there is no more information.
    There is any way to do this or maybe we have to manage in a different way?
    Many thanks in advance.

  • File adapter operating system command exit code

    If you call an operating system command in the file adapter, how is the exit code of the command handled? The documentation says nothing about this.
    If I call 'true', I expect the file adapter to succeed.
    If I call 'false', I expect the file adapter to fail.
    Hope someone can calrify.
    Best regards
    /Otto Frost

    Hi, Yes, you are rigth, it spawns a subprocess, that runs without control.
    In java you use Runtime.exec().
    It returns a process.
    process.exitValue() returns an int.
    The process is already used to terminate the process after timeout I suppose.
    You would like to be able to have the fileadapter succeed or fail depending on this exitValue.
    Depending on the command you execute, the exit code is different. RTFM on unix.
    You would like to define which codes should be treated as success, and which ones that should be treated as failure.
    true typically returns 0 and false not 0
    However, a comparison command could for example return 0 for equal, -1 if the frist argument is smaller and 1 if the first argument is larger.
    For the diff command, Exit status is 0 if inputs are the same, 1 if different, 2 if trouble.

  • Operating  System commands in FTP adapter

    I have a requirement to use "Operating System Command" option in the Sender/Receiver side File Adapter.
    And in they have brief notes on this.
    When I tried to execute some valid DOS commands like MKDIR,RENAME etc it didn't work at all.
    But process has been sucessfully completed without any error!!!
    System : XI 3.0 SP 11
    Can anyone has any inputs on this ? Pls share me some ideas with example. Is there is any limitations on this feature?
    Note: When I tried to give invalid commands hfjkhfkasdjfh,asdjdhas etc, still it is not giving any error!!. Still my File Adapter as well as entire process is successfully completed.

    A couple of cautionary notes.
    The OS command is executed after the file has been processed, e.g. read successfully by a sender adapter or created successfully by a receiver adapter.
    The file name processed can be accessed using %f in the OS command.
    The OS command must include the full directory path, or XI will assume the current directory which may not be where your command resides.

  • Run operating system command for sender File adpter (NFS)

    Hi All,
    iam doing a file to RFC scenario, using 'Run operating system command' in sender file adapter to change the file name while archiving (after processing completed).
    I mention OS command like this:
    Rename.bat file calls a 'perl script' code.
    when i run interface, could see below statement in adapter log ->
    "Execute OS command "
    but the script was not run and file name was not changed.
    Please advice what could be the problem?
    Does this mean script executed successfully?
    Do i need install perl software on XI server, even perl script (.bat file) is executing on sample_server?
    Thanks in advance..

    Just check the following URL and give it a try again :-

  • Unable to run a Batch File Operating System Command

    Using XI 3.0, I am unable to run a Batch File Operating System Command After Message Processing.
    My Batch file:
    gpg -se -r BOA3RSKY --armor --passphrase-fd 0 %1 < C:\Progra~1\GNU\GnuPG\gpgin
    My Command Line (ID scenario)
    exec "cmd.exe /c C:\Progra~1\GNU\GnuPG\boagpg.bat %F"
    If I execute
    exec "cmd.exe /c type C:\Progra~1\GNU\GnuPG\boagpg.bat >xis.txt"
    It displays the contents of boagpg.bat file in xis.txt.
    I just don't understand why when I run the batch file, I would expect an %F.asc encrypted file in the same directory as the %F unencrypted file.
    Any ideas?
    or will I need Basis to create commands that will allow me to run GPG from XI Command Line?

  • Is it possible to call operating system command after file receive?

    Hi expert,
    I'm trying to call operating system command after file receive receive a txt file.
    operating system command uses txt file name as parameter.
    Is it possible? How?

    It should be possible, actually we have two options that are
    1.RUN OS command before message processing
    2.RUN OS command after message processing.
    So you can give the commands in the RUN OS command after message processing.

  • Run Operating System Commands

    There is an urgent requirement, i want to know about Run Operating System Commands in file adapter. What are all possible commands for windows operating system? and how it works? Kindly send me your suggestions and links at the earliest.
    Your help will be appreciated.

    Run Operating System Command Before/After Message Processing
    &#9679;      Command Line
    An operating system command specified here is executed before or after the message processing of a file that was found in a run. The default value is an empty character string (no command).
    When the operating system command is called, the file name currently being processed can be specified with the following placeholders:
    &#9679;        %f (file name)
    &#9679;        %F(absolute file name including path)
    &#9679;      Timeout (secs)
    This specifies the maximum runtime of the executing program in seconds. When this time interval is exceeded, the adapter continues processing. The executing program continues to run in the background.
    &#9679;      Terminate Program After Timeout
    Set this indicator if the adapter is to terminate the executing program when the timeout is exceeded.
    The adapter writes the output (STDOUT and STDERR) for the operating system command in the system trace.


    just i want to know what is the purpose of run operating system command before message processing,after message processing under file sender adapter.
    waiting for your great answer.
    seeta ram.

    Hello Seeta,
    let me see if I give it using a simple scenario that I implamented : i nedd to transfer a very large file from one server to the other by XI.
    to save space and network traffic I use an OS command before picking up the file to run a zip command to zip the file.
    after I transfer the file to the target server I run another OS command after the transfer to unzip the file.
    now to your second question:
    the before Os command on the target server is used mostly for checks (make sure there isn't a file by that name or backing up existing data)
    and the after sender OS command is usualy for backing up or erasing existing files (cause it is done only after the first part was finished succesfully).
