Use this Node to perform operations on files in the same system, for example moving files on a local network, or from folder to folder on an FTP server.

As of Version, the File Manage Node is no longer executable in Run From Cloud configuration and should instead be run from a DropPoint. Should the from cloud configuration be required, this can be arranged by submitting a support ticket.

The prefix provided as part of SourcePath determine the file type as follows:

  • [Drive]:\ local drive
  • \\ UNC path for network share
  • ftp:// FTP
  • sftp:// SFTP
  • ftps:// FTPS


The Username and PasswordorClientPrivateKeyFileContents provided in the ConnectionProperty will be used to authorize FTP or SFTP sessions only. If you require specific credentials to gain access to a local file or UNC path, change the Windows Service account used by the DropPoint.
