How to run JetTracFolderCreate:

To run JetTrac Folder Create these files are required:

  • JTFolderCreate.exe

This can be run through JobController or locally in a bat file.

Default Functionality:

Used when folders on the Windows server need to be created dynamically and on-the-fly based on data in PDF forms or from other systems.

Job Step Configuration Window in JobConfig for JetTrac FolderCreate:

When setting up a job step using JTFolderCreate in JobConfig the only line of the config you need to worry is the first line, the Folder to create. This field should be filled with the fully qualified path to the folder you want to create. Eg: C:\JetTrac\…\NewFolder
In JobConfig, file paths entered should not be in quotes.

As with all modules, there is a dropdown to select whether or not the job should stop completely if this step fails. If you select Yes, any error will terminate the job process and write to the log file what happened, if no, then the job will try to continue anyways. However if any steps further down the line rely on the output of a job set to not stop on error, they may not work properly.

For more specifics go to the JetTrac Field ServiceJobConfig page.

JetTrac FolderCreate Command Line:

“C:\JetTrac\Programs\JTFolderCreate\JTFolderCreate.exe” “FOLDERNAME” “C:\JTFolderCreate.log” 

Each part of the line is divided by spaces (the amount doesn’t matter), and contains the fully qualified file path to the file you are referencing surrounded by quotes.
The command line begins with the file path to the module’s executable file followed by the name of the folder you wish to create and the file path to the log file. The line ends with a short description of what the module does.

Additional Notes:

To add multiple folders you would add multiple command lines to the necessary directory.
