Does any one know Jscript method to read the file from a network location in ARIS 7.1.

I am trying to read file stored i a network location so that I can set that script in ARIS scheduler to schedule the script.

I am trying to do the same thing.  Read a file on a network share so that I can process the file in ARIS jscript.  So far I have not been able to read a file located on the network.  Script works if I store the file in script location using:

var xlsFileData = Context.getFile(xlsFile, Constants.LOCATION_SCRIPT);

The requirement is to be able to read from a specified network share so I need to know if this is possible.

Hopefully someone still reads this thread:

Can anyone confirm that there is no solution to load a file located on the network share from ARIS script?

Hi friends,


Here is a method in Context object,


var myOutput = Context.getOutputObject(filename, data)

The type of the 2nd parameter is byte array.

So, you can write a JAVA class to load your remote file  to byte[]  data stream, then create you aris output Object.
