File listener job details

File listener job details

The file listener creates a file listener job and displays in the File Transfer Logs page. The file listener listens to files in the specified folder and records events in the File Listener Job Properties page. The status field in the file listener job properties indicates the change in the file listener job.

Job properties

The job properties for each file listener job instance display general properties about the instance.
The job properties include the following properties:
Asset Name
Name of the asset.
Asset Type
The type of asset. In this case, file listener.
Started By
Name of the user or schedule that started the job.
Start Time
Date and time that the job was started.
End Time
Date and time that the job completed or stopped.
App Version
Agent version on which the file listener instance is running.
Snapshot reset
When you update the file listener definition, such as updating the run-time environment, connector type, connection, or listener rule properties, the file listener requires a reset. This action clears the list of previously tracked files.
If the file listener is reset, the snapshot reset value is true.

Job results

The job results for each file listener job instance display the status of the job and success and error statistics.
The job results include the following properties:
A job can have one of the following statuses:
  • Failed: The file listener did not run successfully.
  • Completed: The file listener completed the run successfully.
  • Stopped: The stopped state occurs for the following reasons:
    • The file listener is stopped manually.
    • A scheduled run starts while the file listener is running after a manual start. A manually started job stops when a scheduled run begins.
    • The file listener stops automatically when the agent restarts on the same application version. The file listener also stops running on an application version if an updated application version is available.
  • Running with Error: The file listener has encountered errors.
  • Running: The file listener run is in progress.
Arrived Files
Number of files that arrived to the target.
Updated Files
Number of files that were updated.
Deleted Files
Number of files that were deleted.
This is auto populated, and it is based on the state of the job. For example, if the file listener is in Failed status, the message includes the reason for failure.
The file listener fails if the number of file events such as arrive, update, or delete, exceeds the maximum event limit.

File events

The File Events section shows the total number of files that the file listener job has transferred, with information about each file.
The File Events section is updated each time the file listener job transfers a file, and the state of the file updates throughout the file transfer process. You can track the progress of the transfer of a file based on the state of the file.
The File Events section displays the following properties for each file:
The name of the file.
File Size (Bytes)
The size of the file in bytes.
Last Modified
The date and time when the file was last modified.
Path of the file.
Event Type
Type of file transfer event.
Event Time
The date and time when the file event occurred.
