monitor- modify monitor.fileList

I'm working with my first monitor to trigger a project. The monitor checks for new files on an sftp resource every 4 hours. If a new file is found it will trigger project. I unknowingly had an problem with my project and as a result when 2 new files were discovered the project ran but failed.

Now it appears the snapshot considers these files as old. Since these files did not transfer as expected, is there a way to reset something so the monitor detects those two files?

My attempts to manually pass the file name through a project level variable was not successful (I think because I attempted to pass a single file name variable through on a source files variable).

All input welcomed, thanks

There are a couple options for you at this point.

1- Rename the files on the Source Server and have your Monitor kick in again with the new file names.
2- Tweak your Project to generate a new file list once it makes the connection and retrieve what's there
3- Have your Project loop through the list and go retrieve each file individually instead of as part of a FileList var.

Either one of the three above should help you get the file(s)
