Last updated on JANUARY 22, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Managed File Transfer - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Create a Transfer with Two targets. Note that the first Target, has a transfer-added subdirectory and the second Target has NO transfer-added subdirectory. 
Next, Remove the first Target Test19_T1 from the Transfer:
Result is that the subdirectory gets added to Second Target

Following logs were generated after making the changes, however there is no error happening.


STEPS TO REPRODUCE
--------------------------
Use case 1:

1. Create a new transfer.
2. Create a source and select the File as type.
3. Create 2 targets T1_test1 and T2_test2 with first and second target with a subfolder test1 and test2.
4.Now delete the first target,

Then the Target will get replaced as T2_test2 with subfolder test1 instead of T2_test2 with test2.

Use case 2:

1. Create a new transfer.
2. Create a source and select the File as type.
3. Create 2 targets T1_test1 and T2_test2 with first and second target with a subfolder test1 and without subfolder.
4.Now delete the first target,

Then the Target will get replaced as T2_test2 with subfolder test1.

2.2.3 Configuring Target-Specific Transfer Settings

If the target type is File, FTP Remote, or sFTP Remote, the subfolder setting is displayed. This adds a transfer-specific subfolder to the target location.

Based on the above steps, this does not add the transfer-specific subfolder to the target location.
