File listener used in mass ingestion tasks and B2B Gateway partner flows
File listener used in the File Watch Task step of a taskflow
The file listener runs until the first occurrence of a file event or until the configured end time.
The file listener runs until the first occurrence of a file event or until a timeout occurs.
If a file event does not occur, by default, the taskflow waits for 5 minutes or for the overridden value defined in the
Time Outinput field of the File Watch Task step. The maximum time period for which the taskflow waits is 7 days, after which it times out.
End time of run
The latest end time of the run is at 11:55 PM on the configured end date and time zone, and cannot extend to the following day.
The file listener runs until a file event or timeout occurs, and does not depend on any end date or time zone.
Start and Stop
You can start and stop a file listener instance from Data Integration or by using the File Transfer REST API resources.
When you run a taskflow that contains a File Watch Task step, the associated file listener instance starts. The file listener instance stops when the first occurrence of a file event or a timeout occurs.
When you manually start or stop a file listener instance, the taskflow is not impacted.
