Update File in DropBox
The Update File In DropBox job step type is used to update attributes of data files in a Matrix and optionally take further queue actions.
Matrix functionality requires either a subscription to the hosted pasPortal collaboration application or the development of custom interfaces.
This job step type extends basic job step functionality. For details common to all job step types click here.
In addition to the common attributes shared by all job steps this job step type has the following attributes:
•Apply File Date Macro: When checked targeted files will have their date changed using a provided macro expression. This will result in moving the file from one date to another in the matrix.
•Apply File Name Macro: When checked targeted files will have their file name changed using a provided macro expression. Ensure that the file extension matches the Content Type.
•Apply Content Type Macro: When checked targeted files will have their content type changed using a provided macro expression. This should correspond to the extension of the File Name.
•Apply Tag Macro: When checked targeted files will have their tag changed using a provided macro expression. This may impact the processing of jobs and selection by the DropBox impeller.
•Apply Contributor Macro: When checked targeted files will have their contributor changed using a provided macro expression. This should be in the form of an email address.
•Actions: Actions to be taken in addition to changing the attributes listed above.
•Purge Work in Queue: Removes all pending work from the Work queue that references updated data files.
•Reprocess Impellers: Reprocesses the conditions that enqueue work (even if they have already been run before).

•Data File ID Output Parameter (Optional): If a value is provided the DataFileID of the data file saved will be stored in a parameter named for the value provided. This is only applicable when a single data file is updated.
