Robo-FTP Server provides a powerful event-driven automation interface which enables you to launch Robo-FTP scripts in response to events such as a user logging on, uploading a file, etc. This interface is called Server Event Scripts.
Several built-in variables are automatically populated whenever a Server Event Script is triggered. These variables contain information relevant to the event. For example, when a user uploads a file, variables are populated with information like the filename, the path to the file, etc. This knowledge base article describes the events and built-in variables available: KB#271.
This is a Robo-FTP Server Event Script designed to be used with the Upload Complete event.
The purpose of this script is to move uploaded files to a destination folder while preserving the relative folder path. This is accomplished by using the /copydirs option on the Robo-FTP MOVE script command.
To configure Robo-FTP Server to launch the event script at the appropriate time, follow these steps:
- Download this sample script and save it as
MoveUpload_PreservePath.s(use the Download link above)
- Edit the script file and change the value of the destination_root variable.
- Launch Robo-FTP Server Console
- Select Automation in the navigation bar on the left
- Select "Enable for all" under Server Event Scripts on the right
- Select "Upload Complete" from the Server Event drop-down list
- In the Event Script File Name box enter the full path to the
MoveUpload_PreservePath.sscript file that you saved earlier
- Click the Apply button
