File listener activity not working as expected post pega update



The file listener final activity is not behaving as expected after upgrade to Pega 7.2.2

Steps to Reproduce

Root Cause

A software use or operation error: In Pega 7.2.2 the File Listener functionality has changed. The file is no longer copied to the File Listener work directory when it is to be processed. This was done to make file processing more efficient if the file is large.

In this case the File Listener epilog activity was expecting the current file to be in the File Listener work directory. It was not there.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior: 

The file remains in the top level directory where it was dropped as it is processed. If the requirement is to process the file it will be there during the time the Listener method activities are run.
