How to export workflow log to an external resource like ftp or smb server?

Jump to solution

Hi all,

Recently i wrote an workflow to get all storage path status, but i need to save all of the result into an external resource like ftp or smb servers.

Can anyone suggest me the best practice?

Thank you

SMB would probably require providing Command access which is a security risk so FTP is safer & vRO has an FTP client class

You can use it to either

- send content to a remote file

this one is simple

var content = "some content";

ftpClient.putContent(content, "remotefile.txt");

- create a local file on the vRO appliance and upload that.

You will need to have the capability to create a local file on the vRO appliance but you can the following to create a temp file and write your content to it, then upload to the remote with the desired name.

// assume your file content is in this var

var fileContent = "whatever the content should be";

var localFile = System.createTempFile(".txt"); // create a temp file with the given suffix

FileWriter fw = new FileWriter(localFile);

fw.open();

fw.write(fileContent);

fw.close();

var localFileFullName = localFile.path + "\" + localFile.name

// do the FTP upload here

ftpClient.putFile(localFileFullName, "whatever the name at the remote should be");

  1. var ftp = new FTPClient(); 
  2. ftp.connect("10.20.123.135", "21");  // sample ip, port 
  3. ftp.login("user", "pass");  // sample username, password 
  4. System.log("cwd -> " + ftp.cwd); // print current directory 
  5. ftp.makeRemoteDirectory("/tmp6");  // create a new directory 
  6. ftp.cwd = "/tmp6";  // changes current directory to the newly created one 
  7. System.log("cwd -> " + ftp.cwd);  // print the new current directory 
  8. ftp.disconnect();
