The watchfolder trigger will activate as soon as a new asset is detected within an active watchfolder. To use an watchfolder stream, it is mandatory to create a profile beforehand.

To enhance your workflow further, contemplate integrating a Prestream within the Watchfolder profile.

While the watchfolder job is carried out by a client, it is imperative for the Helmut server to have access to the content of the specified watchfolders.

This is crucial because the IO container consistently monitors for any newly incoming assets.

Host Assignment

Any stream with this trigger must have "CLIENT" as the host type. Since this stream needs to be assigned to any user/client, server execution is not possible.
