A File System endpoint allows a folder or directory accessible from an access point server—a local file system, a mounted network file system, or on a Windows Access Point, a UNC path—to act as a source or destination for data transfer. See also What is an Access Point? The File System endpoint has the following attributes.
- Access point
- The access point on which you want the endpoint to be created.
- After you select an access point, browse through the file system on that access point, and then select a root directory to act as a source or destination for a data flow.
- If there are no access points available to you, you can create one. See Working with Access Points.
- Note: By default, File System Endpoint built on a given Access Point has recursive access to the files and folders under the Access Point's root directory. All the files in all the folders under the selected directory are selected for transfer. You can restrict this behavior when you configure a Data Flow by selecting a subfolder as the Data Flow's Source and/or by specifying a filter pattern. See Managing Data Flows for more information.
