Hey guys, is it possible to use a forEachLoop with a file list to compress each file on its own? Below is my attempt which fails. When i run the project in debug i can see the variable {file} has a value of "Remote File" and not full instantiated file with path
Code: Select all
			<forEachLoop itemsVariable="${src01_list}" currentItemVariable="file">
				<zip label="compress" inputFilesVariable="${file}" outputFile="./archive/${file:nameWithoutExtension}.zip" version="1.0" />

{sr01_list} =

desired result

Make sure you are using a LOCAL file list variable. What you're describing indicates you are using a REMOTE file list variable.

When using the LOCAL file list variable, you should be able to do exactly what you're trying to do. But, I'm thinking that ${src01_list} is the REMOTE file list and not a LOCAL file list.

Make sure and try your archive again.

Thanks Rick, you are correct. My example of {src01_list} was actually /ftp.server.../abc.txt as opposed to ./abc.txt
