File Existence Monitor

This SAM template tests if a file exists at the given file path.




Windows credentials with read access to the network share.

Agent-less or Orion agent for Windows requirements

Implementation of these components relies either on WMI or windows file share access to the target machine.

Orion agent for Linux requirements

Python implementation leverages native file system access directly from the python script running locally on the target agent machine. Due to the configuration settings, switching between agent-less and Orion agent for Linux will not establish a correct connection as the file path in UNC format will not work on a Linux-based computer. For details, see Configure Linux/Unix systems for monitoring by the Orion agent in SAM.
