Zynk Workflow Documentation

This task will output a list of files contained within a folder, and optionally it’s sub-folders. The result can be saved to a file in XML format, or can be picked up by the next task in the workflow (by selecting the ‘Output from the previous task’ option in the next task’s settings).



The directory containing the files to list. Leave blank to list files in the workflow’s working directory.

Output File

The XML file to save the list of files to. If left blank, the task will return a Zynk object containing the list of files. This can be used accessed by the next task in the workflow, by selecting the ‘Output from the previous task’ option for one of the task’s settings.


Set to true if you want the task to list all files in sub-directories, or false to only list files in the directory specified.

Search Pattern

Allows you to specify the type of files to be processed. For example, *.xml will only list files with the .xml extension.
