I have a source (SFTP) which can be populated by different type of files like csv, txt, gz etc. But I want StreamSets to process the files only when they are ready. So when any file is completed, the client (of mine) generates a file with the same name but with .ready extension. So if the file with 'abc.txt' is complete then they generate 'abc.txt.ready'. I want StreamSets to pick abc.txt only when abc.txt.ready is created. How would I do this in StreamSets?

PS: There are many clients and all of them generate .ready files so I cannot ask the client to change the logic, like if the file is ready then rename it to some other name as is suggested Here

This is currently not supported, but it makes sense. Please comment on SDC-6827 with your requirements and we will add it to the roadmap as time and priorities permit.

Are there any workaround for this, as this issue is major for us and can't wait till SDC adds them in their future releases?
