Use Your File System Like a Data Source

August 11, 2014

New with the latest release of Starfish ETL, you can now treat the files on your hard drive like a data source. Have you ever had to migrate attachments that were simply stored in a structured folder system with no other information? The new File System connector will allow you to set a folder which will be scanned recursively. Each file found will be treated like a row of Origin data.

You'll have information like the subfolder name, file size, including extended information such as version, author and more. Using file operations already built into Starfish ETL, you can then move/copy these files, convert the format and save them in a database, or save them as attachments against records in your CRM system.
