Standalone Pattern –> MFT will transfer files on its own from source to target directory.
Login to MFT console (http://host:port/mftconsole)
Go to Design tab and click on “Sources” to create a source location to pick the files.
Enter the name, type as “File” and location (Directory to pick the file) and click on Create button.
Now click on “Targets” to create a target location to place the file.
Click on Target, it will open a window create the target.
Provide the name, type as “file” and location (Directory to place the file) and click on create.
Once you are done with creating “Source” and “Target”, you have to create a Transfer (Which will Transfer the file from your source to target).
For creating the Transfer click on “Transfer”, it will open a window to create a Transfer.
Provide the name and click on “Create”.
Now it will open a new window with source and target.
In source side we have two options (create source, add source), we can either create the source from transfer or use an existing source.
In target side we have two options (create target, add target), we can either create the target from transfer or use an existing target.
As we have created the source and target earlier we will use them. Click on <add source>, it will open a window with list of sources.
Select the source that we have created earlier and do the same for target as well.
Now your transfer looks like this.
In source we have “Content Filters” where we can mention the file naming pattern, based on that pattern source will process the files.
I have provided the value as “Test*.txt”, means it will process records which start with Test.
Now Click on Save and then click on Deploy.
It will open a new window with list of artifacts getting deployed to MFT server.
You will see both source and target are getting deployed along with Transfer. Click on Deploy button to finish the deployment.
Now we have to test our Transfer, place the file in your local directory and check the status of your Transfer.
Click on Monitoring tab to verify your Transfers.
Expand the “Transfer Instances” and click on our Transfer i.e., “Local Transfer” and click on Instances tab.
Here you can see that transfer is successful.
