Enables processes to interact with
the file system of the AEM forms Server or other file system that
the server can access. Processes can use this service to perform
the following tasks:
Save data as files on the file system
Retrieve information from files and save it as process data
Manipulate directories and files on the file system
If you specify local paths to files or directories for any operation
properties, the paths are interpreted as being on the file system
of the AEM forms Server.
The user account that is used to run the AEM
forms Server must have the required permissions to interact with
the files and file locations that the service’s operations target.
Most file operations are system-dependent and invoke operating
system libraries. The behavior of the service operations can depend
on the operating system that the AEM forms Server runs on. Also,
all file and directory paths are system-dependent.
For information about using the File Utilities service, see
For some of the operations listed, you must specify file or folder
paths as input or output parameters. Use absolute file or folder
paths where required.
Examples of absolute file paths are:
Examples of absolute folder paths are:
In UNIX, when you specify the absolute file
or folder path, ensure that you use the forward slash ('/'), and
not the backward slash ('\').
