Each archiving connector can write meta information in form of an additional file to the archiving directory of each archived transfer. The format of this file, the file name and its contents are fully customizable. Each archiving connector is pre-configured with a default template in form of an Apache Velocity Template.
The Velocity Context of the template includes all information which might be relevant for archiving.
The Meta-Data File
For each archived transfer a meta-data file is written to the archiving directory named by the name template specified in the meta-data settings.
For the file name of the meta-file also exists access to the Meta-Data Settings mentioned above. This means that for the file name the marked transfer information is available as well.
A transfer is provided having the tracking-id '20170822-114019-3a4efd0d'. Together with a configuration shown in the above screenshot the meta-data file name will be 'meta-info_20170822-114019-3a4efd0d.xml'.
There are 2 available templates for meta-data content. One for the legacy connector and the other for both, the local file system connector and the secure copy connector.
For all connector types the contents can be changed as required for the archiving system in use. The pre-configured templates are only examples.
