How is the File System Items Source used in a dataflow?¶
A File System Items Source is used to point towards a folder or directory containing multiple files that are to be processed in a flow. In a dataflow, it is used when we use a source as a transformations to provide a dynamic file path to a source object. It can be either run in singleton mode or in a loop. It requires a file path to the directory where the source files reside. It also provides an option for including items in subdirectory which, if checked, will include all the files present in the sub-folders
File System Items Source can be found in Toolbox > Sources > File System Items Source.
