Re: Trigger on IFS Folder?



fixed

Hi, Jerry:

What you can do is to turn on journaling of the IFS folder(s) you care about, and then have a small program monitor the audit journal entries ...

Carsten Flensburg has published a number of nice tools and utilities in NEWS/400, iSeriesNEWS, System i NEWS, etc. over the years.

Hope that helps,

This is just a matter of curiosity. I have applied triggers to database
files, but I was wondering if it was possible to apply a trigger to a
non-QSYS folder in the IFS? That is, possible application, which I'm
thinking about, is if a file is dropped into \FolderJA could I have a
trigger program that would automatically be invoked to process files in the
folder?


In the past I just had a NEP that checked every, oh, 15-60 minutes to see if
there was anything there.


Thanks.
