I know we can create folder , through process model , But can we create sub - folder also , if so can anyone let me know how to do it .
For eg : For Request id 1 i have uploaded 2 doc , suppose assume if doc 1 belongs to category 1 and doc 2 belongs to sub category of 1 , the doc should be saved in their respective folder, it should also check if the folder/doc exists or no .
Can anyone please help me on this !

This is definitely possible. You can string together "Create Folder" smart services and you can either pass in the parent folder or the parent knowledge centre and save the output folder object into a process variable.
Don't forget to set/modify/inherit security if that's a requirement and you can also move the folders created into the desired application using the "Add Objects to Application" smart service.
i got this error when trying add object folder to application
Did you check the tomcat-stdout log for more details?
Why are you doing this? Adding a dynamically created folder would make it part of the deployable application package.
Hi Stefan Helzle, this is my tomcat-stdout log and i see same error "Unsupported type: 12". i want to create insurance claims form, where every claims have 10 images and store to folder claim.
-Folder Claim 1 - Document claim 1
- Document claim 2
- Document claim 3
-Folder Claim 2 - Document claim 1
The unsupported type 12 is a Knowledge Center.
Is there a specific reason for why you create folders for each case? Do you need to restrict access? If no, I would not create folders.
We have more than one client. Each client have their own folder to manage. Client that i said before must be registered dynamically on application so we have to create folder dynamically for keeping their file separately.
any suggestion ?
Yes, do not add any dynamically created objects to your application! These are "runtime" objects, but not application development artefacts which you would want to deploy.
