Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Orchestrator, System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator, System Center 2012 SP1 - Orchestrator

The Get Lines activity gets multiple lines from a text file according to criteria that you specify. You can use the Get Lines activity to get specific lines from any location in a text file.

This activity replaces functionality in the Manage Text File legacy activity from Opalis 6.3.

Configuring the Get Lines Activity

Before you configure the Get Lines activity, you need to determine the following:

  • The name of the file you want to get lines from.

  • The encoding type that the file you want to get the lines from uses.

  • The criteria you use to filter the lines.

Use the following information to configure the Get Lines activity.
