Configuring File Type Routing

With File Type Routing, Connect uses a file's extension to determine its type and routes files to different subfolders based in this information.

Creating a File Type routing

Go to the Routings tab in the configuration and click on the green Plus icon to create a new routing.

These are your options when setting up File Type Routing:

Name: Name the routing to make it easy to recognize and use when attaching it to a channel.

Description: If you need to explain in detail what the routing does or is used for, enter it in this field.

Routing Options

Create subfolders automatically: This is the default setting and will create subfolders in the destination named according to the transferred files' extension.

Use Association table: If you would like to associate a file extension with a folder with a more intelligible name, use this option. Then add extensions (without the dot) and folders to the association list below. Note that there are two modes of operation when using the association table: If Create subfolders automatically is also turned on, extensions not defined in the list will be added and routed to a subfolder named after the extension. However, if Create subfolders automatically is not simultaneously enabled, files with an extension not listed in the association table will be placed flat on the destination folder's root level.


Remember to click the Save button in the lower-right corner when you have made changes to the configuration.
