  • Backup Input File

    I really like this program and for a long time VB programmer this program is killing off 4 or 5 apps I wrote. Lots of potential, I'm even willing to learn some Java Script now.

    I have a channel, inputs a file, transforms, saves to destination. I find it hard to believe there is no BACKUP option in the source settings to backup the file before it gets altered and save elsewhere to processed. I have a VB app that does nothing but creates a copy of the HL7 files to a BACKUP directory then copies it to another location for processing. How can I get this done in mirth? Many systems need this in case you need to pull back a DFT or ORM message etc and rerun or review it for whatever reason.

    The other part that still gets me (seems to be a unix hang over) is that .hp and .HP are assumed different extensions??? In the source I put *.hp, it wouldn't touch *.HP, how do I get it to do both, it's stupid and should be fixed. What's the secret to see both?

    That box takes a pattern, so you could put *.hp | *.HP, or simply * if you want everything in that directory. There might be another way too, such as putting a flag to ignore case, but I'm not sure what the pattern can contain.

    In terms of backing up a file, you could simply use the FileUtil to write out the incoming message in the source transformer or in the preprocessor.
