Answer / kiran

You can use a pmcmd command to trigger the workflow using a
shell script. You can also use the event wait task
described in the above answer.

Alternately you can use an UNIX script to work as an active
listener. This will trigger the workflow once the presence
of file is detected in a specific directory. A schedular
tool also will be useful.

If you could describe more about your requirement one can
add more thoughts into it.

Answer / lakshmi

you could use an event wait task in the workflow as the
first task. Once the event wait task detects the file in
the specified folder all other sessions tasks wil run.

alternatively you could use unix commanda in the command
task.

Answer / arnab

Add an event wait in your workflow and have a Unix script
touch a zero byte file in the source file directory and
configure the even wait to look for this zero byte file in
the source directory as soon as the event wait detects the
file the session will execute
