Orchestration workflows have limited file handling available. For the most part, workflows are limited to downloading files from a remote source and uploading files to a remote destination. You do not have access to the filesystem itself, nor do most other activities support files as input.


  • A workflow can have a File as an input variable but not as an output variable.
  • Orchestration does not have persistent storage for files. If a workflow downloads a file, it is only stored for the duration of the workflow instance and when the workflow completes it’s deleted.
