Enable Wildcard File Name: if there are multiple source files in a folder, you can specify an algorithm that will be used to select the next source file to process. For example, if

Override Wildcard File Name set for Connection: if
Wildcard File Namesare allowed,
Override Wildcard File Name set for Connectionis enabled, and the file name entered in the
FROMfield of the transformation is a wildcard file name, the system will override the file name entered at the Connection level. Otherwise, the default behavior is to use the wildcard file name entered when the Connection was configured.
When SharePoint Connection is used as a source (
FROM) in the source-to-destination transformation, it is possible to configure the automatic decryption of the encrypted source files using the PGP algorithm and private key uploaded to the secure key storage.
If the private key is available, all source files processed by the transformation will be automatically decrypted using the PGP algorithm and given key. Note that the private key requires a password.
