Selective Transfer Rules dialog

 

Selective Transfer is a type of skip list. It works in addition to your global and per-site skip list. The advantages of using selective transfer rules is that you can define a rule set to either transfer or skip matching files or folders, and you can switch between multiple rule sets.

 

When an item is about to be inserted into the transfer queue the selective transfer list rules are evaluated, if the item matches a pattern that is set to skip then it will automatically be skipped and not added into the transfer queue.

 

A selective transfer rule set can selected for the current session, a scheduled task, or for each individual queue item.

 

Below are some examples of what you can do with a selective transfer rule set.

 

Only transfer files that end with .php, all other files will be skipped

File List Mask *.php action transfer

Folder List Mask <leave empty> action transfer

 

Transfer everything but skip folders named .svn

File List Mask <leave empty> action transfer

Folder List Mask .svn action skip

 

Warning: if the File List or Folder List is empty and the action is set to skip then everything will be skipped and you will not be able to transfer any files or folders.
