    Alert if file is moved to specific folder

    pebcakproblemsolver

      Hello everyone,

       

      Does anyone know of a way to set up an alert to monitor a specific folder?
      We have a lot of automated jobs and when one fails it sends a file into an "invalid" folder, so monitoring it and being proactive about it would make a lot of our departments happy.

       

      Thanks in advanced.

          I resolved the issue.
          I put FIM into place on the root folder where the file is before it is assessed and moved, and I also put it on the Invalid folder. I used a test file to see which accounts moved and touch the file if it is read invalid. It was the System account and our Transport account. Then I counted how many time they both touched it. I created an alert that said "If this server reads that these 2 accounts touch this file X amount of time, send email to ABC@DEF.GHI"
          Tested it and it works great.
