10.10. Configuring the File System Provider

The following file system provider configuration options are available within a file system message filter (fs-message-filter) which itself is contained in an fs-bus. For a good example, see the helloworld_file_action quick start.

Note

For the directory options below, each directory specified must exist and the application server's user must have both read and write permissions on the directory in order to move and rename files through them.
