I have an email that I am trying to list the names of the files in a file list variable. When I use ${filelist:name} it errors with: Method 'getName' or 'isName' not found on class 'com.linoma.dpa.util.FileList'. Original expression: retfiles:name.

Is this not acceptable in the body of an email?

Thanks

You can use the file list variable in the email message body without the file attribute (name). That will give you a list of the files that include the folder path.
${retfiles}

If you do not want the path information, then you can create a temporary print file.

You would need to do a For Each loop thru the file list.
Using the PRINT task, write the file name to a temporary file: ${retfiles:name}${system.lineFeed}

Then using that temporary file, Add a File to the message body.


for example:
<forEachLoop itemsVariable="${retfiles}" currentItemVariable="CurrentItem">
<print file="${system.job.workspace}TempFile.txt" version="1.0">
<![CDATA[${CurrentItem:name}${system.lineFeed}]]>
</print>
</forEachLoop>
<sendEmail resourceId="HelpSystem" toList="goanywhere.support@helpsystems.com" keyLocation="KeyVault" version="2.0">
<from address="goanywhere.support@helpsystems.com" keyLocation="KeyVault" />
<subject>
<![CDATA[test]]>
</subject>
<message file="${system.job.workspace}TempFile.txt" />
</sendEmail>
