Boomi Essential Lab , that example why Flat file is .dat file ,why cant .txt or .csv we give as extenstion,Automatically DDMMYY.dat file is created.so
Boomis internal file extension is .dat. If we want to change it to any other extension, we could use the set properties,document properties etc.
I am new to Boomi, I am not getting option to change the file extension.Boomi essential Lab set properties shown is how to ser disk file .xml.. do you any links to show the changing of file extenstion using set properties.
As mentioned by Michael Morthala, Boomi creates file with .dat extension.
Basically set properties shape is used before the connector shape to change the extension from .dat to required extension.
For example, if you want to send the file to local disk, you will use Disk from document property and select the option.
You can either set a static value or a dynamic value.
