Activate FTP download from email

Post by Sunnyland » Wed Oct 02, 2019 4:24 am

I have a service that poles a FTP server to download some records. The files are only loaded onto the server once a day and when they are complete I receive an email to let me know they are ready to download. At the moment I just pole the server for a set number of hours each day but I would prefer to only pole the server once. Basically what I would like a workflow that receives the email and then instructs the ftp download to start.

Does anyone know how I might achieve this?

Ftp configurator is designed to poll server based on your specification so it would replace your service.

If you want to use it in different way, all I can think of is once you receive email, parse email and extract file name, than use Wget or similar tool/script to download file directly from generated url.
