About File Listener data instances

Use the File Listener form in conjunction with Service File rules to import data from a file or files into your system.

The following tabs are available on this form:


You can use the Records Explorer to review or create file listeners.

As an alternative to updating this form directly, you can create a File Listener data instance through the Service Wizard.


The Data-Admin-Connect-FileListener class contains file listener data instances. This class is part of the Integration-Resources category.

Associated ruleset

When you save a file listener instance, if the Associated ruleset is [none], the system completes this field with a RuleSet from the current application. This association assists with application packaging. You can update the associated RuleSet using the field in the upper right corner of the form. See Identifying parts of rule and data forms.

If there is no ruleset associated with the data instance (for example, for existing instances not previously associated with a ruleset), the Associated ruleset displays [none].
