I have the following python script that is used to move zip files from one folder to another and it works fine when executed before being published:
import shutil import os dir = r'C:\\arcgisserver\directories\arcgissystem\..path' destination = r'C:\\arcgisserver\directories\arcgisjobs\..path' for files in os.listdir(dir): if files.endswith('.zip'): shutil.move(files,destination)
However once I published this as a geoprocessing service and ran the resultant tool, the process succeeded however the files were not moved. Is it possible that something is being changed when the script is published as a service?
I accessed the published service script and it had changed to the following:
# Esri start of added variables g_ESRI_variable_1 = os.path.join(arcpy.env.packageWorkspace,u'layer_updated_drawings') g_ESRI_variable_2 = os.path.join(arcpy.env.packageWorkspace,u'dwgtozippedshapefile_gpserver') # Esri end of added variables import shutil import os dir = g_ESRI_variable_1 destination = g_ESRI_variable_2 for files in os.listdir(dir): if files.endswith('.zip'): shutil.move(files,destination)
However when I changed the values back to the paths as in the original code above I was getting an error on the last line :
The error was that although it was finding the file in the folder as it was mentioning the file by name in the error, for some reason it was not finding the same file in the same location to be moved. The resultant error is as follows:
