MFT is transferring files which are not yet complete (Doc ID 2698332.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 16, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service - Version 16.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


MFT is transferring files which are not yet complete. The scenario is as follows:

An application (not MFT) is writing files to a directory.

While those files are being written, their filename is given a .part suffix to indicate they are only partly written. eg:


Once the file is complete, the application renames it to have a .xml suffix. eg:


Only once the file has been renamed to have the .xml suffix should MFT transfer the file.

However MFT is transferring the file even when it has the .part suffix (and is thus not yet complete).
