No upload email being sent

I'm trying to send an email when files get uploaded but they don't generate. If I flag download and delete as well, then these emails are generated at the appropriate times but the upload email never happens.

Even if I overwrite an existing file with the upload - i get the delete email for the file but no upload email.

Any ideas why please?

I think we'll need to see a log file to be able to troubleshoot this problem.  Can you please open a ticket at enterprisedt.com/help and attach a debug-level log file?

I changed the Folder Filter to be /GUHealth/FromAU/GUHEALTH*.* and I now get the email when I transfer both the .txt and the .csv files.
Difference is - in the email I show %FILENAME% and on the .csv email it shows GUHEALTH__test.csv.filepart rather than just GUHEALTH__test.csv

Great.  That explains it then.  The upload doesn't match the filter until the client renames it after it's finished uploading it.  So you'll need to select the rename event as well.  That's very useful to know.  Does that explain all the behaviour you've seen?

So, the Upload trigger runs whilst the upload is still in progress and the file hasn't been renamed yet like it does on successful completion? But only on CSV's?

I don't seem to have a Rename event in the Events section.

The event you want is called 'Move file' rather than rename.

I can't think why it should have anything to do with the extension of the file, though our tester has just reported that she's seeing different behaviour depending on the size.  Could that be the problem?

Regarding the upload event.  The upload event would've triggered when the upload was completed, but at that point the name of the file was XYZ.filepart and therefore didn't match your file filter.  I guess you could change your file filter to also match .filepart; that way you won't have to worry about the move event.  You can do this using a regular expression as follows:


The brackets around the last extension followed by the question-mark indicate that it's optional.

The files size I have been testing with is only 134KB so not large at all.
Also, %TransferStatus% shows 'successful' on the Upload triggered email.

Move event works - and shows %Filename% without the .filepart.

Problem is, for a .txt file you only get the Upload trigger and no Move trigger but for .csv you get both.

May have to use the regex option instead.

Wonder why the difference in operation for .csv versus .txt
