File Renaming in SFG RCT: Add the possibility to define source and target filename pattern as provisioning facts

It's currently only possible to define a static renaming functionality in SFG RCT, meaning that lots of RCTs need to be defined in order to achieve all file renaming needs. The renaming functionality should be done at the channel creation by defining the renaming rule using for example provisioning facts.

How will this idea be used?

The idea would be to be able to define a RCT that takes the following provisioning facts:

  • myProducerFilenamePattern (valid Regex) : will be used it in the producer file structure to filter the different files in the producer mailbox

  • myConsumerFilenamePattern (valid Regex using also group fact names of the consumer regex) : will be used it in the consumer file structure to define the new filenames

Basically the functionality is already there. A solution is just required to set these renaming rules at the channel creation to prevent creating tons of renaming RCTs.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. While we agree that this idea would add value, it is not something we are able to assign priority to at this time. In general, when accepting an idea, we strive to deliver the enhancement within 18 months. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest, feel free to re-enter the idea in 12 months to see if priorities have shifted. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
