Foundation 22.1

City Bank keeps all records of the month's deposit slips from every teller in a directory. The root directory is located at C:\City Bank Deposit Slips. The following is the directory structure they use:

City Bank wants to import all deposit slips for each month into OnBase and have the imported files assigned to the AP - Deposit Document Type. Each file must also be assigned the Teller # Keyword Type and the Date Effective Keyword Type. Each file name follows the format of [Teller #],[Date Effective].tif.

To configure a Directory Import Processor process for City Bank's directory, the following is configured:

  • A Default Mapping at the root directory with a Default Document Type of AP - Deposit.

  • A file name Ordered Keyword Mapping to assign the Teller # and Date Effective Keyword Types.

The process is configured with a Default Mapping, named Deposit Slips, in the following way:

The Deposit Slips Default Mapping is configured with an Ordered Keyword Mapping for file names in the following way:


City Bank must format the Date Effective Keyword Type to process the date Keyword Value correctly. See Date Formatting for more information on formatting date Keyword Types.
