How to get the File name through File Listener


My Requirement is to listen to a pdf file from a location, attach it to the Work Object and move the work Object to a Work basket, the filename which we listens tells us to which Work Basket this WO should be pushed into.

Can anyone help me on this of how to get File name of the file which File listener listens to.

What we have been able to accomplish is to parse a TXT file, take that information and from there create a new document(doc or txt), put the info into that document and attach the new document to the WO we created, not sure if that applies for your requirement? the name of the file is something we are giving at the moment of creating the file. Let me know if so I can help you out

Hi DEYA0003 and Rahul,

Were you able to do this. We have similar requirement.

I am able to get the file name by running file service synchronously but when i run file service asynchronously i am able to get the file name.

Any news regarding how to get the file name?

To get the file name which file listener is processing, u can get it in LogServiceFile  page. It will give details like Fle Name, File extension, File size etc..  We will mention this page in process tab of a file listener. Below is the attached screenshot. 

Hope this helps..

If you run the service file, you cant get this data as the page is not in the picture at that time. The only way to get this data is running the File Listener. You can trace the file lisener to see the page.
