What DATA do I need in the FTP module?

Hi

I am trying to come up with a scenario that will monitor and folder on Google Drive, and if there is a new file or modified file, then it will upload it to a particular FTP address.

What I can’t seem to find any info on, is what exactly I need to type in to the “Data” box on the FTP module.

The more information link doesn’t work.

Thanks

Ian

Hey @Ian_Kerry

You will need to add the ‘Google Drive - Download a file’ module to the scenario so you can map in the data successfully:

I hope that helps you.

Thanks @Olly_Ats

The Google Drive that is being watched in my scenario, often has images placed in it by staff. These then need to be uploaded to the FTP address so they appear on the website.

At the moment the Watch files in a folder, seem to be working - in that it outputs the name of a new image that has been added.

Are you saying that I would need to download the new file before I can upload it?

Thanks

Ian

Hey @Ian_Kerry ,
Yes, you would need to download the file before uploading it ,
for that you can use google Drive’s "Download a File " module .
After that you will see a option in your FTP module where you can map the file directly from the “Download a file” Module.

Hey @Ian_Kerry ,

@Ishan is absolutely correct, the file data needs to be downloaded first, hence why you need to add the ‘Download a file’ module.
