moveFile Step

Last published at: May 14th, 2024


Moves a file from one directory to another on the server


  • moveToDirectory – full path for the directory on the server
  • filePath – full path to the file on the server
  • overwrite – overwrite files on destination
  • newFilePathVarGlobal – Variable/Global to store new file path


  • True – step executed successfully
  • False – step failed to execute 



Let’s build and execute the movefileDef example.          

  • Create a new definition called “movefileDef
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag a "moveFile" step from the toolbox and connect as shown in the graphic above
  • Configure Variable variable.newFilePath as string 
  • Click on the “moveFile” step to configure its properties as shown on the below graphic

  • Save the process definition. Create a new process instance and execute. The process step should move file from one directory to another within the app server and the new file path is stored in variable.newFilePath as configured.
