Case 1 :
enter image description here
I am facing issue is when I placing WorkSpaceRunner at starting it taking all records which is not required but files are getting generated(Output is getting as per expected).

Case 2:
enter image description here
Another when I place WorkSpaceRunner after some processing like FeatureMerger its taking required count but files not getting generating might be feature not getting at that place( Output is not generating) ?

As WorkSpaceRunner to run for each feature it not ideal to run at starting even if we enable value "Wait for Job to Complete" to Yes. I will be dealing larger shape file datasets. Need to run after finishing current workspace execution.

How can run one time WorkSpaceRunner while running inside another Workspace ? If this not possible then where to place ?

  • I think you can do with data in a database, but your using files - FME needs to read the entire file before passing data to the next transformer.

  • Reading data from shape file. Is it possible once current Workspace finish work then only hit WorkSpaceRunner? Jun 21, 2021 at 15:18

1 Answer 1


If I understand what you want (run the WorkspaceRunner only once, not a time for every feature) you only have to add a Sampler transformer with 1 first feature.

  • any example for this ? Jun 23, 2021 at 16:02
