KB0012454 – Folder monitoring is not responsive

KB Article #: 12454


It takes some time to generate batch sub-folders after user drop new files into the watch folder. System also fails to pick up batch sub-folders into batch instance. If user restarts Ephesoft service, it will pick up new files and new batch instances immediately.


1. Stop Ephesoft service.
2. Edit  folder-monitor.properties file which is located at <Ephesoft installation>\Application\WEB-INF\classes\META-INF\dcma-folder-monitor.
3, Modify the line foldermonitor.jnotify_switch=false. This will enable cron job.
4. Start Ephesoft service.


Note*: If the property is set to true , the files get picked up immediately versus using a cron job.
