   The installation and update of connectors is performed by EasyVista. Please contact your EasyVista consultant to submit your requests for any creation or update.

This connector is used to upload a file from a form field. It is usually an intermediate connector used together with other connectors, e.g. the uploaded file will subsequently be processed by another connector.

  • A unique ID is assigned to each uploaded file.
  • The ID is stored in the library variable associated with the form field.
  • The uploaded files can then be manipulated by the connector using their ID.
