  • Currently GetMetadata activity only supports getting file name instead of file fullPath. It's in our backlog. Could you please elaborate your scenario/use case which could help us evaluate and reprioritize?

  • Hi,

    I would like to get the folder name from the file path and insert the value into the table. I tried other options and it can be done using custom activity. Kindly let me know if there is a better approach. Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Which connector are you using? We actually support getting folder name out of a folder path if that's what you want.
