FTP Adapter Context Property Oddities

Interesting to see that the FTP adapter doesn’t capture the full Uri of the file in its ReceivedFileName context property – instead it simply gives us the filename:

ftp-context-properties2

Compare this with the FILE adapter where the full name (incl. the path) of the file is provided:

file-context-properties

So, if you need to capture say the folder structure of the FTP server, you need to do a few lines of magic to extract the folder name from the InboundTransportLocation property (shown in green in the first screenshot) and munge it with the ReceivedFileName.
