Using Regular Expressions To Download Files With Date Formats In Their Filenames

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Wed, Feb 18, 2015 @ 03:28 AM


Overview

Some of the most common download-related questions people ask at our help desk are probably those that have to do with filenames that have dates on them. I encountered another one yesterday, so I thought it would be a good idea to write a blog post about the subject and build on it as I encounter different solutions along the way. Who knows? Some of you folks out there might find it useful. Better yet, you might be able to contribute your own expressions so that we can all benefit from them. Sounds like a plan? Let's get this ball rolling.

Last time, we published a short tutorial on Setting Up A Trading Partner For Automated FTP file transfers.

Scheduling an Automated File Transfer for Files Matching a Regex

Overview

One of the reasons why our clients love Triggers is because this feature makes it so easy to set up unmanned, automated file transfers that run overnight or over the weekend. But sometimes, you'll want to specify more than just a schedule. One particular client, for example, wanted to restrict a scheduled download to a certain set of files, which he wanted to specify using a regular expression or regex. This post details the steps we recommended for him to achieve that.
