How to make a File Browser non-mandatory in Server App

8 - Asteroid

Hi, I have a Server App that does not always require a certain input file. On Server the File Browser tool errors if a file is not selected. Is there a way to make the File Browser tool non-mandatory.


When running the App directly in Designer I made it non-mandatory by un-ticking the "Required" tick box in the relevant Action tool (see below). But this does not work once the App is uploaded to Server.

Any suggestions.

Sorry all, this is resolved. The problem was the App could not file the hard written file in the Input tool. Once I replaced this with an "Externals" file path it worked fine.
