How does it work?

By default all data flow routes configured on customers’ DTN connections are unique, meaning they can’t be duplicated through normal Webtools access. File Cloner is a commercial solution that allows for copies of both inbound and outbound data flows to be sent to one or more DTS connections.

For large and complex projects involving multiple parties, you can combine inbound and outbound flow copy configurations.

Inbound Flows

 

For inbound flows, you must have data flow routes set up to receive the original data. Your partner companies must also have DTS connections set up in order to receive copies of the data. Copies will only be generated once the original data flow has been delivered. It essentially works like a CC in an email as shown in the example here.

 

Outbound Flows

For Outbound flows the recipient party must have a DTS connection and data flow routes configured for you to send them your data flows.

Your partner companies must also have DTS connections set up in order to receive copies of the data.

Copies will only be received once the original file has been delivered.

  • Does not impact Live Operations
  • Be fully aware of all ‘in-flight’ transactions prior to cutover
  • Copy flow is sent once original flow has  been delivered
