Check if file exists in Sharepoint



Every week one file with the name "YYYY-MM-DD".csv (ex: 2020-09-24.csv) is uploaded to Sharepoint. Is it possible to monitor, if this file exists? Is there a way to work with variables in the file-sensor? Or should I use a different sensor?

Hi there,

It's not possible to define a dynamic name in the file sensor. In your case, I would recommend to use a exe/script Sensor which checks for this file.
