How to access resources or any other folder without service studio

Hi Team,

I wanted to upload a xls file to Resource folder without using service studio, how to do that? 

Thanks in advance.

Hi deepak,

The resources are read-only,  you cannot use an extension to write data to those files by referring to them as resources of the module.

 use the extension anyway but use the file's path in the filesystem.

with Networkfilesystem component  you can achieve this:

cheers,

Rocky

Hello Deepak N,

I'm just curious. Why do you want to do that? What's your requirement?

Cheers.

Hi Rocky,


Do you know what is the default file path of Outsystems resources folder?

Thanks,

Lanz,

Why do you need access to the resources folder? I think it is not accessible from an extension/application, as this would be a big security breach.

And I can't see any reason why you should have direct access to it.

Could you explain your use case?

Cheers
