File uploading to ThingWorx repository

I have a scenario where we need to connect to the local computer and read the same CSV file to ThingWorx repository. I was checking on File Upload widget. But in this case since the file is getting generated in a time periodic manner can not upload it manually.

Could someone suggest how can we automate this process to read the CSV file from local computer to Thingworx repository !!

You should use a a RemoteThingWithFileTransfer remote thing, that implies to install a TW Edge Agent where the files reside and it will be connected always to ThingWorx, that way you can upload/download remote files easily.

 

Here you have the documentation of TW Edge capabilities: http://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx_hc/thingworx_edge/ you should look at ThingWorx WebSocket-based Edge Microserver (WS EMS), and there you have the following documentation on how to configure File Transfers: http://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx_hc/thingworx_edge/#page/latest%2Fws_ems%2Fc_ems_wsems_configur...
