Data Folder Monitor Integration Connector

Connector details

The data folder monitor integration connector monitor changes in a file directory (folder) and maintains a DataFolder asset for the folder. The files and directories underneath it are assumed to be elements/records in the DataFolder asset and so each time there is a change to the files and directories under the monitored directory, it results in an update to the lastModified property of the corresponding DataFolder asset.

Assumes the DataFolder asset already exists

This connector assumes that the DataFolder asset is already defined. If it cannot retrieve the DataFolder asset, it ignores file changes.
