Parse a file

Use the Parse file operation to extract information from a file to be stored in a variable table.


  1. Select Parse file from the Operation list in one of the following locations:
    • the Identification Sections or Connectivity Sections for Service Mapping
    • the Step window for Discovery

    Defining parameters and conditions for the parse file operation.
  2. Fill in the fields, as appropriate.
    Field Description

    Important: Avoid entering a specific path to a location or file because it can be different on different operating systems. It is recommended to use variables for paths.
