Output file

Specifies the full path and name of the output file created by a step based on the BuildFileFromProperties step template. The file can be in any format, including XML, JSON, and CSV.
Default
None
Database name
Job.OutputFile
Usage notes:
  • You can use Ricoh ProcessDirector symbol notation for the name of the file. For more information about symbol notation and how to use it, refer to the help system.

  • To make sure that other steps in the workflow can process the output file, save it in the spool directory for the job. For example, use this symbol to write the output to an XML data file stored in the spool directory for the job: ${getFileName(data,xml,write)}

    The step names the file jobID.data.xml where jobID is the job number.

  • If you specify a directory other than the spool directory, make sure that the system user has permission to write the output to that directory.

  • You can save the properties for the BuildFileFromProperties step without setting a value for this property, but an output file is required when the step processes jobs. To set the Output file property from within the workflow, use a step (such as SetJobPropsFromTextFile or AssignJobValues) that sets job properties.
