Connectivity to files is defined using the File Palette within TIBCO Cloud Integration. File connections are used when specifying activities from these Files palette. The File Palette is used to read, write, delete, or create files. This palette also has a process starter that allows you to poll for files and start a process based on the available file.

Palettes group activities that perform similar tasks. TIBCO Cloud Integration provides various technology-specific palettes that provide quick access to activities when building a process.
