    The type of file to download.

  • Category

    The relevant category of the file type. Possible values will be determined by the selected file type.

  • File date

    The date of the file to download.

  • Only download if changed

    Only download the file if it has changed. If the file has not changed, a blank file will be saved.

Results

  • File path

    The full path where the downloaded file will be saved.

  • File exists

    If the file already exists, you can opt to

    Increment file name will add a number to the filename to make that name unique. This is a sequential number starting with 1.

    Overwrite file will replace all content in the file with the new content.

    Throw exception will stop the process and return an error.

Settings

  • Settings

    Allows to override the default values of various settings on the binding like timeouts and message size limits.

    Eg. {"SendTimeout":"00:10:00","MaxReceiveMessageSize":"1048576"}
    The values above will set the operation timeout to 10 minutes (overriding the default of 1 minute), and set the maximum message size that the binding will process to 1,048,576 bytes (overriding the default of 65,536 bytes).

    See Binding Settings below for the list of available settings.

Output

  • A string value that contains the full path where the downloaded file was saved.

Binding Settings

The following binding settings can be specified using the Settings property:

  • OpenTimeout

    Default: 1 minute

    The interval of time provided for a connection to open. This time span includes all necessary security handshakes, protocol negotiations etc.

  • CloseTimeout

    Default: 1 minute

    The interval of time provided for a connection to close. This time span includes all necessary security handshakes, protocol negotiations etc.

  • SendTimeout

    Default: 1 minute

    The interval of time provided for the entire service call to complete, from sending the request to receiving the response.

  • MaxReceivedMessageSize

    Default: 65,536 bytes

    The maximum size of received messages in bytes.

  • MaxBufferPoolSize

    Default: 524,288 bytes

    The maximum amount of memory, in bytes, allocated to the buffer manager for processing messages.

    The buffer pool helps decrease the overhead due to memory allocation (and subsequent gargabe collection) while processing messages. A buffer pool size that is too small can cause degradation of performance due to extensive allocation from the CLR garbage heap.

  • MaxBufferSize

    Default: 65,536 bytes

    Available only when Security mode is set to None. Sets the maximum size, in bytes, of the buffer that receives messages from the channel.

  • TextEncoding

    Default: UTF8

    The character encoding that is used for transmitting text.
    Allowed values: BigEndianUnicode, Default, Unicode, UTF32, UTF7, UTF8

  • TransferMode

    Default: Buffered

    Available only when Security mode is set to None. Selects if messages are sent buffered or streamed.

    Allowed values:

    • Buffered
      Request and response messages are both buffered.
    • Streamed
      Request and response messages are both streamed.
    • StreamedRequest
      The request message is streamed, and the response is buffered.
    • StreamedResponse
      The request message is buffered, and the response is streamed.
