Can I use ServiceExport path for my file listener directory?
I am trying to implement a simple file service processing[processing a csv file]. And that part works great, I tested by running the service directly by uploading a csv file.
Now I want the service file to be processed by a file listener. While configuring, I am asked with the directory to listen. I am trying to use the ServiceExport directory[file://web:/StaticContent/global/ServiceExport/], and I get success when i click on "Test Connection".
I am FilePath control to upload a file to this path. I confirmed the file is placed in the ServiceExport directory. But the file listener doesn't seem to process this file.
So my question is can I use the ServiceExport directory for file listener location?
If not, how to create a directory for file listener? I read articles that PEGA should have read/write access to the listening directory. So how can i create one.
By the way I am using Pega 7.3.1 Personal Edition.
NOTE: I cleared the ServiceExport directory files before to make sure only my newly uploaded file is the 1st instance of CSV.

As mentioned Service export is a directory that is used multiple ways for internal purpose and sometimes contents inside the directory is removed hence it is not suggested to use that location as it can hamper file listener functionality.
You can just use any other location by creating a folder and give 777 permission.
