Creating a Job for renaming a file on an FTP server

Create a Job to connect to an FTP server, then rename a file on the server, finally close the connection to the server.

Before you begin

Prerequisites: To replicate this scenario, an FTP server must be started and a file must be put onto the server. In this example, the file movies.json has been put into the folder movies under the root directory of the FTP server.


  1. Create a new Job and add a tFTPConnection component, a tFTPRename component, and a tFTPClose component by typing their names in the design workspace or dropping them from the Palette.
  2. Link the tFTPConnection component to the tFTPRename component using a Trigger > OnSubjobOk connection.
  3. Link the tFTPRename component to the tFTPClose component using a Trigger > OnSubjobOk connection.
