Detailed Description

The configuration for the Data Comparator CANNOT be automated directly. The attribute FilePath, along with a saved configuration file must be used.
Note When using the attribute FilePath to retrieve incoming files, it will validate if both the folder path is correct and that the file itself exists.

<Comparator FilePath="databaseEZ-comparator-setup.xml"/>

Example Script

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ytriaAutomation Application="databaseEZ" ApplicationVersion="16.5">
<Load Server="ACME01/ACME" Select="True"/>
<Comparator FilePath="C:\comparator_config.xml"/>

In the script above, the entire server "ACME01/ACME" will be loaded into the database tree in databaseEZ; all databases will be selected and loaded into the main grid. The action 'Comparator' will trigger the retrieval of the saved Data Comparator configuration file "comparator_config.xml" and run a data comparison, of the data in the main grid, based on this configuration.
