Hi

I know that we can refer to vars.filename in a data loading activity to find the file name. However; this is uploaded filename and not the one listed in the parameters, plus this is mf5 hashed. How can we find out the actual file name which was used; and record this?

Hi Ankur,

I'm not sure if there are ways to find back the original name. I'd recommend checking with support if there is a solution that can be put in place for that.

Hi Ankur,

it's not very clear from your question what you want. can you share the workflow and highlight what you need?

are you uploading file resources or some csv file?

regards,

Amit

Hi Amit

I want to refer to the name of csv file being loaded in the data load activity; when i use vars.filename it refers to the name of the file after server upload (md5 hashed); is there a system variable which can be used to refer the actual csv file's name.
