Hi,

Can anyone suggest me how to define dynamic path for file-input node.

IIB Version : 10.0.0.8
Scenario : Same Server has 2 IIB instance are running IIB_A and IIB_B.
Same flow should read the file from 2 location /var/mqsi/IIB_A/external/Config/*.xml and /var/mqsi/IIB_B/external/Config/*.xml path

Is there any option to dynamically override input directory path in 10.0.0.8 version???

You can achieve that via BAR overrides, apply the right value to the BAR file before deployment.
Similarly if the flow were listening on Remote servers the remote directory can be set via 'FtpServer' configurable service property 'remoteDirectory'.

PS: I'm not sure it is a good practice to use IIB's workpath location (/var/mqsi) to store files for your interfaces. Ideally the workpath location should be left alone for IIB's internal stuff and use a separate file mount point for interface related activities (or better use an internal FTP server within your network)

I'll go further...I'm absolutely certain that it's a terrible idea!

I do hope you're not storing flow configuration information in an XML file that you pick up at run time. IIB is not WAS and shouldn't be treated as such.

I'm led to this alarming possibility that you're trying to pull these files out of the /var/mqsi<broker name> directory (where broker internals are stored) and a user directory called config.

This is a bad idea and a terrible design. You walk a path to pain and misery; turn back.

You can "dynamically" change where the file input node reads a file from using a BAR override at deploy time. Having read it, it will then delete it or move it (depending on how you've configured it) and that's your config gone.

You can't configure a deployed file to point to a different location and you shouldn't want to.

This scenario is only applicable from UAT on-wards.. In UAT we have 2 IIB instance is running parallel to handle load. Deployment time it will deploy single bar into both IIB instances.

Thanks for sharing. What's that got to do with anything you've previously posted?

I stand by my previous post.
