Today i come with a case that i can’t yet find a solution… This is the scenario
I have a worklow which has to download a .xlsx file from a Drive account and then find the file in the downloads folder, and use it to Upload the file to a storage bucket. Since the process is created with de Cross-Platform Compability (Which i have no knowledge) finding the route in o the file in the machine with the common methods doesn’t look possible.
The idea is that after downloading the file and extracting the route and the name upload the file to the storage bucket and then get that file for later use in the process. I’m using Cross-Platform because i was ask to, if you’re asking.
So… Let me know what you think, How an i find the file? Does this really work? Is there a better way?
As you can see in the image i uploaded I’m downloading a file from a drive with a click activity… This means that even though I download a file during execution the robot doesn’t know anything about that file, that’s why i don’t know how i can proceed to Upload the file to the Storage Bucket (To be able to Upload the file to the Storage i need to have the route/name of the file).
I tried using a Wait for Download Activity, bubt something is still not working, remembering that we’re talking of a Cross-Platform (Serverless) , robot.
@Edwin_Barahona Cross Platform processes are completly Unattended, and as far as in Know Drive Activities need human intervention to be able to enter the drive account.
“finding a route with the common methods”? what i meant with this is that methods like
Directory.GetFiles(Enviroment…) are not available with Cross Platform.
My question basically is, How i can find the route of the file that i download from drive (see image)?
Not necessarily, you could authenticate with google drive connector or by creating a service account in the google developer console. You will be prompted to authenticate but should only happen on the first setup and whenever you generate a new key or authorize a new account.
