Add folder path in output location

Hi all,


When I save a job to a location with a JDF jobticket i need to save the PDF filename in a folder with the same name as the filename.



Filename=testjob.pdf, then i need a folder with the name "testjob" and put in this folder. I can not change the default name "files" which is use now. 


Can any one help me!

One can manually add to the SAVE file locations additionalfolder names that match the job name. The Save file location entry in FFCore does not support the use of FFCore variables.

Re: Add folder path in output location

I would love to see this feature added inth future as I need to use external code to processes the contents of the save location, and move the file into another folder based upon the file name.  I can't imagine the OP and I are the only folks using FreFlowCore that would use this feature.

Re: Add folder path in output location

You can do this in two stages - first with the Save node to generate your JDF and PDF files in a "temp" location and then use external node to create the folders needed and to move the files in the correct location.

Attached the workflow that would do what you want - modify the .bat file to give the paths you wish to use, and also note that you need to modify the pdf URL in the JDF, but this can be changed in the save node setup.
