Treat "skipped" file as a failure

Karla Marsh
EFT

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT v7.4.11 and later

EFT v8.0 and later store Advanced Properties in a JSON file. When you upgrade from EFT v7.4.x to EFT v8, the non-default settings that you have defined in the registry will be added to the Advanced Properties file during upgrade. (Default settings become part of the EFT configuration files.) For a more on how to use advanced properties, and a spreadsheet of the advanced properties, please refer to the "Advanced Properties" topic in the help for your version of EFT.

DISCUSSION

By default, when EFT is transferring files, it will skip files with duplicate names. If you want to still be notified if files are skipped, add the advanced property TreatSkipAsFailure described below.

In EFT v8 and later:

Add the name:value pair to the AdvancedProperties.JSON file in EFT's \ProgramData\ directory as described in the "Advanced Properties" topic in the online help for your version of EFT.

{
"TreatSkipAsFailure":1
}

  • If set to 1 = treat skipped file as failure
  • If set to 0 or doesn't exist(default) = don't treat skipped file as failure

In versions prior to v8.0:

In v7.4.11 - 7.4.13, create the DWORD below in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0.

  • If set to 1 = treat skipped file as failure
  • If set to 0 or doesn't exist(default) = don't treat skipped file as failure

For more information about the Advanced Properties, refer to the online help for your version of EFT.
