How to start picking files from source folder once a particular file is placed?

Hello Experts,

My requirement is like ECC is creating multiple file and Client wants that PI should start picking the file only once a final file like'.done' file is there.

Can any one help me on this that how can we proceed with this requirement?

I have gone through following two options:

Option 1: "Msecs to Wait Before Modification Check".

Option 2: Trigger file logic through checking 'Additional File(s)' check box in Sender Communication Channel.

Hi Pradeep,

After you place the done file you can start the channel externally in the abap program itself, please check the below blog for reference.
