What to give in source location in file listener, to read file from local machine.


I have a requirement to read a file from local machine. I have created a file listner and gave the path as "C:\", this way it looks into the C drive of the server machine where our pega instance is installed. But I want to read file from my local machine.

Please let me know how to do this or what to give in source location in file listner.

The source location is a local or network file location that is visibile to the server where the Pega 7 Platform is installed. Options for accessing files on another machine (e.g. your laptop) include creating a network share visible to the Pega server or providing FTP access to the files.

Use FTP to upload a file from your local machine to the source directory on the machine where the Pega server is running.
