HTTP Request's response can only be opaque dataset?

We would like to launch an HTTP Request asking an external web server information about a job, which returns XML data. To avoid more steps of XML pickups, we would like to embed the dataset directly in the job, but it is embedded as an opaque dataset, which is not querable. We tried to set the Conte...

Re: RegEx Case Insensitive

Thanks freddyp, that's a good tip! While it is a relatively simple workaround, a dedicated flag — maybe a checkbox or separate option like "matches (case insensitive)" — would be easier to find, just saying :)

Error starting Switch Designer / Failed to connect to SwitchDataService [with solution]

These days we were facing an error for which we looked online without finding anything. Eventually we contacted support as a last resort, but we thought the problem was due to corruption due to sudden power off. While it might be that the power off did do something, it wasn't the root cause. If tryi...

Read PDF contents to rename file

I'm looking for a way to read a section of a PDF file to use it as the name for such file. The text would be in a Text element, so no need to do OCR or anything like that. I thought that by using PitStop Pro i can read the contents of a Text element, but it does not seem possible. Do you have any ot...

Prefer one file over another

We're stuck trying to find a solution to this problem: at some point in our flow, as input we receive many job files, we group them by a string in their name (which is our internal job name) and often one job has a standard file, other times it can also have a file with a "_VDP" in the file name. We...

Re: how to read stderr with the execute command tool

Cheers!

how to read stderr with the execute command tool

Hello, I'm quite new to Switch. I created a command line tool to prepare some files, since we don't have the scripting package I simply used Node.js as tool and passed it my script. http://cl.ly/2k1i0Y431F39/Screen%20Shot%202016-02-26%20at%2017.07.12.png My tool writes to the output file correctly w...
