This node looks in the
output attribute on each incoming work items for file paths tagged
file/archive. If the file name’s extension is supported (
.tar.gz), the node extracts the files inside the archive into a given directory.
If you just want to extract files from one or more pre-existing archive files, do the following:
Create a File Pattern node.
Set the Pattern to match the archive(s) you want to extract. For example,
Make sure Split results into separate items is on.
The node will generate work items for each archive, with its
outputattribute set to the archive path. The path should automatically be tagged
file/archivebased on the extension.
Connect a File Decompress node. Turn on Output file and set it to the directory you want to extract files into.
The File Decompress node sets each work item’s
output to the path of the directory it extracted into, not to the list of extracted files, as you might expect.
A list of input archives that will be decompressed.
A list of directories where archives will be extracted into.
Turn this on and set it to the path to the directory you want to extract files into. The node will create the directory if it does not exist.
TOP Scheduler Override
This parameter overrides the TOP scheduler for this node.
Work Item Priority
This parameter determines how the current scheduler prioritizes the work items in this node.
Inherit From Upstream Item
The work items inherit their priority from their parent items. If a work item has no parent, its priority is set to 0.
The work item priority is set to the value of Priority Expression.
Node Defines Priority
This parameter is only available when Work Item Priority is set to Custom Expression.
This parameter specifies an expression for work item priority. The expression is evaluated for each work item in the node.
