    AEM Watch Folders

    Tim Goodman_BTES Level 1

      I am trying to create a simple Watch Folder:

      1) Take input of an XML file

      2) Create a PDF using XML and XDP (Using "Generate Non-Interactive PDF") - Using a workflow

      3) Write PDF to output folder

       

      The workflow works (I've tested it).

       

      The Watch folder gives a PathNotFound Exception on the payload:

      crx:/etc/fd/watchfolder/staging/watch-folder/Pxc70daf9d779acfdd9e95d9bf/report.xml'

       

      However, if I pause the Workflow instance using a "Participant Step", I can see that the input XML has actually written to the path:

      crx:/etc/fd/watchfolder/staging/watch-folder/Pxc70daf9d779acfdd9e95d9bf/input/report.xml'

       

      Is this a bug?

       

      Additionally - the documentation is quite unclear - there is a setting on the Watched Folder "Payload Mapper Filter" which is not described

      AEM 6.3 Forms Help | Watched folder in AEM Forms

       

      I can't see how to get a file output from the Watched Folder...
