Last published at: June 7th, 2024


This step Zips the file or folder to a destination file path.



  • sourceFolder - Source file or folder
  • destinationFolder - Destination folder path
  • zipFileVarGlobal - Variable/Global that holds the Zip file path



  • True – True condition
  • False – False condition






Let’s build and execute the zipFileDef example.          

  • Create a new definition called “zipFileDef
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag a "zipFile" step from the toolbox
  • Connect the dots between the steps as shown in the above graphic 
  • Create a variable/global to hold the file path
  • Click on the “zipFile” step to configure its properties. Provide the file name or folder path information on the FlowWright server. 


  • Save the process definition, create a process instance, and execute. Render the completed process instance to view the step properties. The step should have ZIPped the file to the destination folder path with format. The variable/global stores the Zip file path.
