FILE Adapter receiving files based on File creation date time. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My client, wants BizTalk to pick up the files from a folder location based on the file creation datetime. Is there any out of box feature available or do we have to write custom component for this functionality. Please suggest.

  • Hey,

    We can achieve this by using FILE.FileCreationTime promoted property as a filter .Thanks.

  • Hi Sriram,

    Thanks for the reply, can you let me know where to specify the filter?

    My requirement is, lets say, for example my Receive Location is polling from a folder e:\Inbound\*.xml and if there are 10 Files available in that folder, then my FILE adapter should pick up the files in the order of their File creation datetime.

  • I think that you need to build a custom adapter to do this.
