use file's mtime in SFTP/FTP Origin event lane

We're currently using SFTP/FTP Origin.

While reading data we need to include as a new field the file's last modified timestamp. On data lane it is possible by using 'mtime' header value.

The problem is that we also consume "finished-file" event to get the number of rows for audit records. Here we also need the source file's last modified timestamp to match in case we reprocess same filename in a later time. In event lane we only have event's created timestamp, and also we cannot share any info between data & event lanes.

Does anyone has any alternative to achieve such goal?

At present, you would need to use the Redis destination or a script evaluator to write the mtime with a suitable key to an external key/value store such as Redis or memcache, then retrieve it using the Redis Lookup processor or a second script evaluator.
