File Monitors




GoAnywhere MFT can monitor (scan) for files that have been created, modified, deleted, or exist within specific folders on the network or on SFTP and FTP/s servers. When file activity occurs, a predefined workflow process can be executed to encrypt, translate, compress, or distribute those files.

File Monitor Features:

  • Scan for new, modified, deleted, or existing files in targeted folders
  • Watch local folders, network shares, SFTP, FTP, FTPS servers, Amazon S3 Buckets, and Azure Blob storage
  • Ensure files are not being written to using file locks or secondary snapshots
  • Filter file names using wildcard or regular expressions
  • Customize the frequency to scan (days of week, time of day, etc.)
  • Run projects to process the files when found
  • Send notifications when no files are found, when projects complete, and if any errors occur
