For-Each step

A step of type "For-each step" lets you iterate through a sequence (for example, a list of files within a directory) and repeat an execution step any number of times. "For-Each" steps has the following structure:

 

For each item in sequence {sequence expression}

Execute (step)

 

FlowForce executes the step until it finishes looping through all items of the sequence expression.

 

Function

In the context of a job, a function is an instruction understood by FlowForce Server that performs some operation on the target file system. A function can be one of the following:

 

A built-in FlowForce function (see Built-in Functions)
A StyleVision transformation
A MapForce mapping
The execution step of a job

 

Most functions have input parameters. Any mandatory input parameters must be supplied by the caller in order for the step to execute successfully.
