Automating file load from dynamic file structure


New to Domo

Is there any way to automate loading files from a dynamic file structure / path? I am trying to figure out a way to automatically fetch files where the subfolder may change based on input location. The file name and type remain constant, but the folder name can vary. Hoping there might be a clever way to use WB or file upload connector with wild cards? Thanks

    The first thing that comes to mind is to use python to copy the file to a consistent directory for workbench to pull from. There is a python library called os that has a "walk" command that can traverse all subfolders and files in a directory and if they match the search criteria, you could have the file copied.
