Is it possible in Alteryx to FTP multiple files from a Server without providing the name of the files ?
I have read through some of the posts that mentioned that wild card characters can not be used to achieve this.
In my case , each has a unique name( filenames dont have any sequence pattern like file100, file200 etc, but different name altogether) and there can be ~100 files to be FTPed everyday and we can not know their name . Is there an option to achieve FTP of files without providing their names in Alteryx?
1. You will make a request to the home directory via the Download tool and extract information about all the files in the directory. You will be able to parse it out and choose which of them you actually want to extract based on name/size/creation date.
2. You will then use the file names to build out a unique FTP link for each of the 100+ files and feed them into another Download tool to get each of these downloaded.
